About Tim Toda:
Tim Toda is a photographer and cinematographer based in Los Angeles. He surrounds himself in the world of music, traveling the world while documenting bands on the road. In addition to graduating from NYU Tisch School of the Arts, where he received a Bachelor’s Degree in Film and Television, he continues to lens short films, music videos, and documentaries.
As he recently wrapped a feature length documentary about the fight for gender, race, and class equity through the history and development of Ultimate Frisbee called “The Sky is Red,” this was his impetus to consciously seek out projects that have a positive social impact. He hopes to continue to build relationships that can help spread a positive message through the lens of filmmaking.
