Tim Kafalas

Tim is a senior video editor with over 15 years of professional experience, proficient in documentary, sports, comedy and narrative in both long and short form. Armed with a strong technical knowledge, a heavy dose of optimism, a classic New England work ethic and a vast wealth of experience, Tim is an invaluable addition to any team.

Originally from a small town in Rhode Island, his love for editing began at Fitchburg State University which led to an internship at the post production house Company 3 / Riot Manhattan in New York. He was initially hired at Riot as a junior video engineer tasked with repairing and wiring machine rooms, online edit and VFX suites as well as telecine and GFX workstations. After three years of technical training, Tim transitioned to the creative side as an editor for the MTV On-Air Promos Department.

In five years at MTV, Tim solidified his short form skills while working on network IDs, episodic promos, sizzle reels, film campaigns, music videos, award winning PSAs, and short films for MTV, MTV2, MTVu, and MTV International. In 2009, Tim left MTV to create an eight episode travel series called “This Is My City,” which he co-created, shot, produced, starred in, edited and released independently. It’s currently available on Amazon Prime.


Tim next spent five years working as a freelance editor on television, commercials, branded content and music videos. Clients included Budweiser, Amazon, Samsung, Hyundai, Microsoft Surface, The Creators Project, Ketel One, Crown Royal, Dove, Charmin, Trojan, Crocs, truth, T-Mobile, MTV’s female-driven comedy show, “Girl Code” and MTV2’s “Guy Code.”

In 2015, Tim was hired at the newly formed Viceland TV Network. As a senior editor on the marketing team “ViceLabs,” he worked on the network’s brand identity as well as creating show pilots and pitch reels. After the network officially launched, he worked as an editor and finishing editor on the green screen series, “Traveling the Stars with Action Bronson.” Tim was also an on-site editor for Viceland’s first live broadcast, “The 2016 Governor’s Ball.” Recently, he edited four episodes over two seasons of Thrasher’s skateboarding documentary travel series, “King of the Road.”

On weekends, Tim watches Premiere League soccer with friends, chats about pizza dough recipes, the proper installation of ceiling fans and retro video games.
