Here you can see some of Tim's videos under the nom de plume "GrumpyTim".

Most of these videos were filmed using vintage lenses, carefully selected for their particular character - the imperfections within the lenses add to the overall atmospheric look and feel of the finished work.  Featuring lenses such as the Russian Industar 61 or the legendary Chinon 55mm f1.4
