TIMEFRAME films specializes in telling “day in the life” stories, so called mini-documentaries. We approach each story from a cinematic point of view. How can we tell these stories and be as authentic and true to the nature of the subject as we can, and still tell it in an appealing cinematographic way?
In the past we have worked with companies like Safeway, A&W and Red Bull. We also partner with many charitable organizations and hospitals.
JONATHAN GIESBRECHT – HEAD OF POST-PRODUCTION
Jonathan grew up in the sleepy suburbs of Port Coquitlam. Raised on a steady diet of VHS tapes and double-features at the local movie theater, his love of cinema continued to grow throughout his life. He joined the Television Broadcast program at BCIT in 2001, and formed his own production company in 2007. Creative, inventive, and with an eye for detail, Jonathan’s main focus and passion is for editing footage into great short films and promos. He now resides with his wife in downtown Vancouver, and still loves double-features at the local movie theater.
