TIM JOHNSON (Director) made his animated feature film directorial debut in 1998 on DreamWorks' first computer-animated comedy release, "Antz,” which starred the voices of Woody Allen, Sharon Stone, Anne Bancroft, Sylvester Stallone, Gene Hackman and Jennifer Lopez. He more recently directed the animated action adventure "Sinbad: Legend of the Seven Seas,” starring the voices of Brad Pitt, Catherine Zeta-Jones and Joseph Fiennes.

Johnson joined PDI in 1988 and, two years later, co-founded the studio's Character Animation Group. He later served as the animation director on "The Simpsons'” 1995 Halloween special, "Homer3,” leading the team in transporting the two-dimensional Homer into a three-dimensional world. The episode has remained a favorite of fans of "The Simpsons,” and has become a classic to animation aficionados. 

Johnson's background in film and animation dates back to his college years. While earning a BA in English Literature at Northwestern University, he produced two animated films, both of which earned Richter Grant Organization Awards. Upon graduation, he worked for two years as a freelance cel animator and director. His introduction to computer animation came in 1985 while he was on staff at Post Effects in Chicago.
