Tim Eaton
Film & Television

When we think of Back to the Future, we see Michael J. Fox and a modified DeLorean. Titanic brings to mind Leonardo DiCaprio and James Cameron. And when we recall Twister, we see Helen Hunt chasing storms.

But all of these films have something else in common: Tim Eaton. Heís the mastermind behind the special effects in those movies, plus an amazing list of other blockbuster titles, provided below.

Tim is a visual effects editor whose interest in film started at Forest Heights Collegiate, where he was a member of the Film Club.

He has come a long way since then, but still gets home to Waterloo Region a few times each year to visit family.

Heís also working on a new project, setting aside the special effects for the moment, and embarking on a journey to write a biographical film on Nikola Tesla, the man who made significant contributions to the development of commercial electricity (and who was a rival of Thomas Edisonís).
