Director Biography - Tim Fox

Hello. My name is Tim Fox. I am an independent director. I am an animator. I am a CG Artist. Sometimes I am all of these things at once. I've worked with X Factor winners and grindcore death metal bands. Small start ups and global brands.

I started my career as a designer, studying art direction at University and, through a love of animation and film moved into directing music promos, commercials and content for the music industry. Along the way I have used every project to develop my skills in all aspects of film making and story telling, with a passion for craft and technique. I enjoy making work that is personality driven, often irreverent with dark humour. I have a passion for colour, form and composition.

Some fun facts about me:

I once directed Jeff Goldblum to climb inside a very expensive piano.

I have been told repeatedly by youtube commenters to stop doing drugs.

One time I filmed an Ant dressed as the Pope vomit yoghurt.
I love villains, not heroes.

Sometimes I will hide in a cupboard for well over an hour to scare people.

I read every comment below every video I have ever made.
