Director Biography - LaMarcus Tinker

LaMarcus was born in Houston, Texas, and was raised by his grandparents. At the age of 8, he lost his grandfather. At that moment, he realized that it was up to him to continue his grandfather’s legacy and spirit in life, not by what he says, but by what he does.

Tinker went to West Briar Middle School where he studied theater. Even in sixth grade, he wanted to be a director but was interested in all aspects of theater, including acting, writing, and other areas of the arts. As a result, he participated in a multitude of school programs. He later attended the NBCA Academy, where he continued his activities in theater and graduated as class Salutatorian. After graduating from NBCA Academy, he received a full academic scholarship to the University of Texas, Arlington, where he studied English. The arts and helping people were where his heart has always been.

Tinker joined the cast of "Friday Night Lights" in September 2009, playing Dallas Tinker, a small-town football player. He had initially gone to the shoot to support two of his friends who had landed work as extras on the show, taking the bus with them from Houston to Austin. He met the show's Executive Producer, Peter Berg, who was directing the episode being filmed and unexpectedly found himself acting in a scene with two of the show's regulars. The series was filmed using three cameras, without rehearsal and extensive blocking. Tinker later recalled, "It was cameras up, let's go! I did it, and he liked it." Two days later, the plans for the show's fourth season were being adjusted to include a new character, Dallas. He was a recurring character for that season, and for the final, fifth one. This was just the beginning of God’s plans for Tinker.

In August 2010, Tinker signed on for the second season of the ABC comedy, “Cougar Town,” as a recurring character named Kevin. He portrayed the college roommate of Travis Cobb (Dan Byrd), the son of the series protagonist, Jules Cobb (Courtney Cox). Tinker was cast for the third season of the hit Fox musical dramedy, “Glee," as Shane, the long-promised boyfriend for Mercedes Jones (Amber Riley).

After a decade in the film business, Tinker decided to step behind the camera.

Tinker is a film producer and the owner of M&M Filmz Inc. and Scoot Productions, LLC. He is an Executive Producer/Director on over 112 successful combined independent feature films, live broadcasting shows, including documentaries, commercials, and much more. Tinker decided to use this platform to help others in his community have success and more options than what are being presented.

Tinker always said, "The only way someone will believe their dreams are possible, is if they know someone personally that came from their environment and made it the right way."
