TIM COURTNEY - DIRECTOR // MUSICIAN
I am a Glasgow based filmmaker, with a background in Art & Design. I co-founded the BAFTA winning production company Factotum Films and have exhibited short films, music videos and art installations across the globe including London's The Barbican, Glasgow Short Film Festival and Aesthetica Film Festival. My work has also featured in Playboy, Drowned in Sound and ESPN.
As well as writing and directing for film I have an undying love for music. I’ve written and recorded three albums with the Scottish post-rock outfit, Katerwaul and in 2014 I earned a BAFTA New Talent Award Nomination for Best Original Music; for the score to my short film Sunsets & Silhouettes.
Recently, I have been focusing purely on directing; collaborating on ground breaking music videos with the likes of Ladytron’s Helen Marnie and SAY Award Winner Kathryn Joseph. When I’m not on a set or at my desk developing my first feature, I’m probably in Pollok Park, walking my dog.
