Timothy Cooper is a filmmaker, playwright, and comedy writer based in Brooklyn.
He wrote and directed the short comedy Lemon, starring Jennifer Westfeldt and Noah Bean, which had its world premiere at the 2017 Tribeca Film Festival. The film has since played at festivals around the world, been licensed for screening on United Airlines, and become one of the most-viewed festival shorts on Amazon Prime. Timothy was named a 2018 IFP Screen Forward Lab Fellow for his sitcom based on the short—one of 12 projects selected worldwide for development in the yearlong incubator.
He also wrote and directed the web sitcom Concierge: The Series, starring comedians from Saturday Night Live, 30 Rock, Bridesmaids, Last Comic Standing, the Onion News Network, CollegeHumor, and Upright Citizens Brigade. For his work on Concierge, he was nominated for a Writers Guild Award for Outstanding Achievement in Writing Original New Media. The series was an official selection of the International Television Festival and the Screen Actors Guild Foundation Short Film Showcase.
Timothy’s first feature-writing credit, Away From Here, starring Nick Stahl, Alicia Witt, and Ray Wise, is available on iTunes and Amazon Prime. Watch the trailer here.
He is a proud member of the Writers Guild of America East, the Brooklyn Filmmakers Collective Writers’ Workshop, the Hollywood Radio and Television Society, and the WGAE Softball Team. Timothy is currently developing multiple pilots and features with a variety of production companies.
