Tim Bain

1st Assistant Director


Tim has racked up over a dozen credits on episodic dramas in half as many years, and for everyone from the BBC to indies and more recently for Netflix. As he comes from a scheduling, production managing and locations background, he knows his way around the floor, around budgets, and around schedules as well as anyone. He’s based in Glasgow but he’s happy to go where the work is.

“Tim is a true professional who steered us through major action scenes working with a mainly Croatian crew. He never lost sight of the details while orchestrating complex schedules that were always user friendly”
