Hello, I’m Tim Keller. I’m an Animation Producer and former Software Developer. I live in Cape Town with my wife, two kids and beagle, Peach.

I work at Sunrise Animation Studios in beautiful Noordhoek, Cape Town. I’ve helped produce shows like Team Jay, Jungle Beat, The Explorers, and Munki and Trunk. I’ve produced, Jungle Beat: The Movie (Netflix, 2021), and have just finished the sequel (coming soon).

My background is in Computer Science, completing a Bachelor of Science in CompSci and Psychology at UCT. I spent several years working as a developer, then as a development manager, before moving into animation.

I’ve had a life-long passion for technology, media and the creative arts. I’m an avid photographer and love travelling the world in search of visual inspiration. Animation sits squarely at the intersection of these passions – and I still can’t believe I get to make cartoons for a living.
