TIMOTHY GUNN

Before becoming a filmmaker, Timothy has spent the past thirteen years training to become a professional musician. While studying the bassoon at Michigan State University, he met Jonathan Worful and quickly developed a strong friendship. After months of discussion, Timothy and Jonathan decided to begin work on a joint feature film effort which would become An Apology to the Dead.

Timothy has long held a passion for the dramatic works of Ingmar Bergman, Francois Truffaut, Krzystof Kieslowski, and, more recently, Lynne Ramsay. It was his wish to infuse much of An Apology to the Dead with the social realism and romantic dynamism of these cinematic forebears.

Tim recently directed a short educational film for The Writing Center at Michigan State University entitled The Thesis Reloaded. The short film features a few cast members from An Apology to the Dead, including Emily Richett (Allison) and Shawn Luckey (Employer), as well as his co-director's wife, Andrea Worful. The film was crewed by some Apology alumni, as well, including Barry Elmore and Mike McLeod. You can watch the twenty minute short in its entirety here.

Timothy currently resides with his wife, Shannon, in Manassas, VA. He is a Middle School Language Arts teacher for Warren County Public Schools. Timothy is also an accomplished photographer, artist, and graphic designer. Along with Jonathan, Timothy is a co-founder of Vernacular Films, LLC.
