Whether he’s directing performance-driven comedy or stylized action, Timothy Kendall’s projects
encompass a keen sense of rhythm, pacing, and visual style that captivates and entertains. An Arizona
native, he studied at the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, CA, where he honed in his film
studies and added a comprehensive familiarity for visual effects and postproduction. From there, he
sharpened his editing skills, cutting several hundred commercials and independent movies before
transitioning to directing, working as second-unit director on the independent feature film
“Self-Medicated.” That film went on to win 39 international film awards and was named the most
awarded film of 2005 and can currently be seen on NETFLIX.
Now, Timothy resides in Los Angeles where he has been professionally directing television commercials
for 15 years. He has been the recipient of dozens of advertising awards including AICP, Telly, Clios,
Addys, One Shows, Lions and more. His commercials are known for a stylized use of action, comedy,
and visual storytelling and sometimes include an eclectic mix of celebrities and sports figures.
Along with commercials, Timothy has created digital content from web series to digital shorts. He has
collaborated with top subscribed YouTubers garnering several hundred million views online. In 2012, he co-created the award winning six-part series The Book Club, which lead to further collaboration with director/producer Justin Lin (Fast and Furious 3-6, StarTrek BEYOND).
In 2015, Timothy directed his first feature film HOLLYWOOD ADVENTURES, which released in the summer of 2015 capturing the number one movie position in China for it’s first two weeks. It earned over $60 million worldwide without ever being released in the United States.
Currently, Timothy is continuing to direct commercials while developing for television and movies.
