Jim Timmerman's been working in television production a long time. Let's just say... before you were born and leave it at that. While it's hard to believe he's that old, the one thing Jim will tell you is that age can't change his love of scary movies. He's always been a fan of movies that frighten the viewer, especially when the director doesn't show you what's scary (you know, glimpses of things in the frame, sound effects, dramatic lighting, just the right kind of music).
Jim's television/video production career started at WLIO-TV in Lima, Ohio. Then he went to WBGU-TV in Bowling Green, Ohio; followed by twenty five years at WCPO-TV in Cincinnati. Since leaving Channel 9, he's created his own small production company that specializes in non-profit clients and he's part owner in a mobile uplink truck company.
He's lectured at all the local universities, taught at Brown Mackie College (where he met the other FFC partners)and currently is an adjunct faculty member at Miami University. Jim has also been an integral member of the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences since, well you know,...a long time.
Jeff got his start in film making when he picked up his parents' 8mm camera and shot videos for school projects so he could avoid standing up and presenting in front of the class. He then became a teacher. Jeff has a love of film making and has been teaching his skills to young film makers since 2001. He enjoys mentoring students and telling them all the ways he has screwed up in the past so they won't make the same mistakes.
He has worked on more than 30 short films and produced "Magic Trip," the winner of the 2018 48 Hour Film Project - Cincinnati.
Jeff's really excels as a video editor. He was an Avid Master Editor, knows his way around almost any editing program, and loves nothing more than being presented with a project that tests his skills. It is well know that Jeff's least favorite saying is "fix it in post" but as an editor, he always loves a good challenge! When Jeff isn't in the classroom or working on a short film, he does a variety of freelance work for a number of clients including The Cincinnati Reds, PG, UC, CVG, and Toyota. And... You should know that his favorite movie of all time is Airplane!
