Tim was nine when he began shooting short movies in his backyard, while one of his oldest movies “The Island of Doctor Agor” was shot in 1971, when he was 12.

Later that year, he directed a couple of short movies, including “Doctor of Doom”, “King and Octopus Animation” and “Stalk of the Celery Monster”, while he gained recognition in 1985, with his family adventure comedy film “Pee-wee’s Big Adventure”. It starred Paul Reubens, Elizabeth Daily and Mark Holton, and follows Pee-wee Herman whose bicycle has just been stolen, while he’s now travelling around the US to get it back; the movie was nominated for two awards.
