Tim joined SF Studios in 2015 to head their production unit in Scandinavia as well as their push into English language feature films. Prior to this he has had a checkered and directionless career spanning International development, corporate strategy consulting and Industrial Services.

Tim is hosting a Roundtable on “Film and TV from a Scandinavian perspective and where SF Studios fits in”.
