Timothy I. Stevenson
TIMOTHY STEVENSON began his love of storytelling at a very young age. Experimenting with his family’s Super 8mm film camera, he would shoot and splice together short films and record radio shows on his cassette recorder. Born near the frigid waters of Lake Superior in Duluth, Minnesota and raised under the sunny skies of Central Florida, Timothy’s time as a youth was split between these two very eclectic and unique cultures that continue to inspire him today.
After earning a degree in Motion Pictures from the University of Miami, Timothy relocated to Los Angeles, where he has trained and collaborated with some of the industry’s most distinguished filmmakers. His creative and administrative expertise encompasses all phases of commercial and feature film production, from ideation, development, and pre-production, through production, post, and marketing.
Following a mentorship with acclaimed manager and film producer, Ellen Goldsmith-Vein, Timothy became a key contributor to shaping the highly successful production division at The Gotham Group. He went on to work on Paramount Pictures’ worldwide fantasy blockbuster, The Spiderwick Chronicles and Oliver Stone’s Savages.
Timothy’s strengths in storytelling and physical production attracted the attention of LA based Advertising and branding agency, Omelet. Timothy was brought in to head development and production for the agency’s branded and original content division. While working with Omelet, Timothy produced branded content for some of the world’s most recognizable brands, including Sony, Microsoft, and Whole Foods, as well as an award winning campaign for AT&T’s It Can Wait campaign, directed at preventing teens from texting while driving.
On the indie front, Timothy is working on a documentary series focused on the quickly vanishing skills of handmade items. The first installment centers on an eccentric 40+ year veteran Aspen ski patrolman who crafts mandolins from scratch. He’s also prepping and seeking financing for his first independent feature producing effort, a high concept comedy about three disillusioned high school buddies, who decide to take their senior trip to a Mexican Tequila factory, twenty years after graduation.
