I met Todd through another filmmaker friend, Ajit Anthony Prem. Our brief introduction left an impression on him…he casted me to play a bruiser in his newest film Southland of the Heart. I accepted and was part of magic that day. Not the kind of magic that I create but the magic of a crew all participating to make the film the best it can be. I was and am in awe of the film. I saw a assemble edit and was very impressed with the acting and storytelling. Simply a beautiful American story.
Todd Tinkham longed to write and direct films since he was a boy growing up in a small fishing community in Massachusetts. But it would take years of working with at-risk teens, mentally ill adults, and incarcerated men, before Tinkham would ever make his first film.
Todd Tinkham founded TinkhamTown Productions in 2005 after losing both of his parents to cancer in 2004. Realizing that his parents had never really pursued their dreams, Todd decided that he could not wait any longer. “After my folks died, I realized that I wasn’t going to live forever, and that if I wanted to go after my dreams, I’d better start now.”
