Academy Award® nominee Timothy Reckart is currently making his feature directing debut on Sony Pictures Animation's faith-inspired, computer animated feature The Star, now playing in theaters.
Timothy first drew attention with his thesis film at the National Film & Television School in the U.K., Head Over Heels, about a long-married couple who have literally grown apart, with the wife living on the ceiling of their house and her husband living on the floor. Head Over Heels had a very successful run in festivals, which ultimately brought the film an Oscar® nomination and an Annie Award win for Best Student Film.
Timothy is a graduate of Harvard University with a degree in History & Literature. He has also obtained a masters degree in Directing Animation from the National Film and Television School.
