Tim Wolfer


Cinematographer & Editor

An Emmy award-winning filmmaker, Timothy Wolfer began his career as an intern for a northern Indiana PBS station, ultimately working as Director of Photography, Editor, Producer, and Director for a variety of local programs. While in college, he completed an internship with Francis Ford Coppola's company, American Zoetrope, working as a production assistant on Sofia Coppola's film Somewhere.

Hurricane Katrina served as his introduction to documentary filmmaking, culminating in three trips to storm-ravaged Mississippi and New Orleans to document the people and their plight. The January 12, 2010, earthquake outside Port-au-Prince, Haiti, inspired him to film the struggles of the local Maison des Enfants de Dieu orphanage. The resulting documentary Adopting Haiti was released in January 2011 on Hulu.com and has screened at film festivals and humanitarian events around the world. The film received attention on CNN.com and won for Best Documentary at the San Diego IndieFest and a silver "Telly Award."

He served as director of photgraphy on Road to Hope, which took him to Uganda, Kenya and South Sudan. As the film’s principal editor, he worked closely with the post-production team for more than a year to get the film completed and ready for release.

Most recently, Timothy has been working on a film about helicopter pilots flying aid missions to typhoon victims in the Philippines and as the international producer for the Emmy award-winning TV show Brain Games, which focuses on ideas that can impact the world.
