Instructor : Tim Tracey is a small town boy, who dreamed of one day being a fisherman, unfortunately a crippling fear of boats ended that dream before it could start.  Tim's next dream involved becoming a radioactive turtle, with his Ninja Turtle action figures in tow young Tim wandered around karate chopping everything in sight. Nothing was safe from this seven-year-old reptile wanna be. Soon the karate chops become boring and little Tim wanted a sai and nunchaku, in the time before the internet this would be a difficult purchase so the decision to make these instruments of carnage out of Styrofoam was an obvious one. This began his passion for practical effects and he has been creating his own practical effects since.  Tim is currently editing his latest feature film ‘Canadian Ninja’.
