Tim Skousen

Dynamic director, Tim Skousen spent his formative years calling several places home, including London, the Bahamas, Chile, Florida and Washington, DC. He studied film at Brigham Young University where he developed his off-beat comedic style.

Tim’s directing career includes quirky comedy campaigns for Cotton, Visa, Pizza Hut, Hot Pockets and Nike, as well as comedic branded content for Powerade, Snapple and Sunkist. His narrative feature The Sasquatch Dumpling Gang, starring Justin Long, won the Audience Award at the Slamdance International Film festival.

In contrast to his comedic work, Tim has a special love for powerful, documentary film. His first feature doc, The University of Sing Sing- an emotional portrait of prisoners in an anti-recidivism educational program at Sing Sing Prison in New York-  premiered on HBO in 2014.  Skousen has since gone on to direct other documentaries including: RAIDERS: The Story of the Greatest Film Ever Made- a documentary about the story behind Raiders of the Lost Ark, and Downwinders, an eye-opening film about the effects of nuclear testing on an unsuspecting American town.
