Timothy Offor is a young, independent minded filmmaker from Brooklyn, NY. His mother never had a car when he was growing up but shuttle him all over New York City participating in a variety of sporting activities, guitar lessons and acting school. Their mode of transportation was the New York City subway system.
It was there; deep down in the rusty old bowels of the New York City subway system where the leaky sewage water festers restlessly, that his creative juices began flowing, literally. He occupied his travel time by writing short stories, musical lyrics and letters to famous artists.
Throughout his academic career, Offor excelled in writing and literature classes. While at The Pennsylvania State University, he took classes under American creative nonfiction writer Toby Thompson. Thompson recommended that Offor consider a career as a writer as he believed he had the necessary talent. While at Penn State, Offor took an elective film class and became hooked on movies. He completed his Penn State education with B.A.’s in English and Media Studies.
Upon graduation he worked at the NYC Department of Education in Special Education as a Family Associate. He also worked as a freelance writer as well. After four years he decided to apply to film school. He was accepted to the University of Southern California’s School of Cinematic Arts MFA Film & Television Production program.
His films have played at several film festivals, including, the Harlem International film festival, the Big Bear Lake International film festival, Project Catalyst, Cannes, and the Palm Springs shorts fest. He is currently in post production for his thesis film, Cal & V, an idea developed from two feature films he has written. Upon completion he will earn his MFA from the University of Southern California’s School of Cinematic Arts.
