Tim Olsen’s passion for filmmaking was ignited at the age of seven when his parents allowed him to experiment with the family’s old VHS video camera.

Over the years, Tim has immersed himself in film, acting, writing, and performing music; however, his enthusiasm for filmmaking remains his true artistic passion.
