Cinematographer - Writer - Editor
Director of Photography Tim Alden Grant has been working with Shea Sizemore and Paul Metzger since the early Speaking to the Dead days. Tim is inspired by art, the act of creation and the extent people are willing to go in order to achieve it. He revels in the surrounding himself with talent that can simply articulate a subject by showing him, not just telling him.
Honesty, family and the people are him are constantly inspiring him to continue writing and filming short stories. There is always a story to tell. That is inspiring and comforting.

Other Influences: Music plays a big role in Timís influences. Favorite artists include David Bowie, Johnny Cash, Feist, M. Ward, Ray LaMontange, Buena Vista Social Club, The Everybodyfeilds and The Gipsy Kings. Timís background is another one of those defining factors in his career. Growing up in the bible belt, and now living in a city built on reacting to the bible-belt is unavoidable. Tim says itís an interesting place to be a part of and thereís no doubt it finds its way into his work.
