Tim Bartlett is a freelance filmmaker who shoots, assembles, and projects moving images.

Editing credits include “Tibet in Song,” a feature documentary which won the 2009 Sundance Film Festival Special Jury Prize, “Death Row Stories,” Alex Gibney and Robert Redford’s documentary series for CNN, popular reality TV shows “The Bachelor” and “Bachelorette” on ABC, and Emmy-winning seasons of “The Amazing Race” on CBS.

Tim received a Thomas J. Watson Fellowship to document the English art of bell ringing, and has since traveled the globe working as a cinematographer on documentary and narrative films.

He creates interactive video projections and installations. Su Lian Tan’s new opera “Lotus Lives,” uses his projections as a central component throughout the live performance of the piece. Tim’s visual work has also been seen in art shows (Azimuth), on architecture (Kentile Floors), in rock clubs (Ghost Ghost), and on the small screen (The New Yorker Presents).

As a teenager, his documentary work was recognized with the Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum Prize in Film and Video. At the same time, he produced over a dozen episodes of a variety-comedy cable access show out of his basement, back when video was analog. It aired in neighboring towns for years.

Tim received a B.A. from Middlebury College in Vermont, and lives in Los Angeles, CA.
He is a member of the Motion Picture Editors Guild.
