Tim Marshall is an award-winning Australian writer/director with an asymmetrical curiosity and a passion for exploring our misbalanced lives, from the joy to the pain.

The outcome of this, ‘Followers’, is a proof-of-concept short film for his feature currently in development. The short film ‘Followers’ had its world premiere in competition at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival and screened in competition at SXSW 2015.
The feature screenplay for ‘Followers’ earned Tim a place in the 2014 Outfest Screenwriting Lab, made it to the semi-finals round of the 2014 Academy Nicholl Fellowship, and was recently a part of the Film Independent Fast Track program in 2017.

Tim also has an exciting slate of feature films and TV shows currently in development.

The pilot script for ‘Forever Alone’ recently won Grand Prize in the WeScreenplay TV Script Contest, judged by Comedy Central.
