Tim Godsall is an internationally acclaimed commercial director known for his offbeat brand of dialogue- and performance-driven comedy.
Godsall has helmed high-profile work for international brands like Axe, Old Spice, Southern Comfort, ESPN, FedEx and XBOX, among many others. A profile in Shots described his work as among “the funniest, quirkiest, and downright oddest commercials of the past decade…[which] helped reshape American TV advertising.”
An expert of visual storytelling, Godsall is the recipient of over two-dozen Cannes Lions, various Clios, Andys, BTAAs, as well as a DGA nomination, leading him to be named one of the world’s most awarded commercial directors by the 2013 Gunn Report.
Godsall started his commercial career at Epoch Films, and then spent a decade at Biscuit Filmworks LA before signing with Anonymous Content in 2014 for commercial representation in the US, UK and Europe. The signing grew out of a relationship that developed while Anonymous produced Godsall’s upcoming feature film debut, Len and Company. The film centers on Len Black (Rhys Ifans), a successful but miserable music producer who flees to his house in Upstate New York to start a period of self-imposed exile, only to have his solitude shattered by his estranged son (Jack Kilmer) and the pop sensation (Juno Temple) he has created.
Godsall grew up in Canada, and has since lived in Toronto, New York and Los Angeles, shooting commercials over the last decade across five continents. He is the proud father of a 5 year-old son, who can build Lego sets that the box clearly states are best suited for kids 8Edit
