Northern California natives Ian Kibbey and Corey Creasey met while studying at the University of California, Berkeley. Since 2003 the two have worked together under the moniker Terri Timely to create short films, music videos and commercials with unique visual style.
Early works like their music videos for artists Joanna Newsom, St. Vincent and Modest Mouse helped the team hone a style that continues to inform their work, drawing on offbeat humor to atypical narratives.
In pursuing their passion for storytelling, Kibbey and Creasey have created a number of short films, including “A Persistent Vision,” “Cecil,” and “Synesthesia,” which premiered as part of the FLUX Super 8 showcase at the Scion Art Gallery in Los Angeles. In 2010 New York’s Guggenheim Museum featured “Synesthesia” as part of the YouTube Play Biennial of Creative Video. In 2013, they directed the documentary, “Father Philanthropy,” about the master art forger, Mark Landis. In 2015 they directed the short film “Input/Output” which was voted one of Vimeo’s “Best of the Year.”
As directors at Park Pictures the duo has helmed numerous spots, including the inaugural campaigns for Square and eMusic, as well as spots for IBM, Xfinity, Honda, Orbit, NY Lottery, Apple, AT&T, Honda, amongst many others.
Their Geico “Unskippable” campaign garnered numerous industry awards including a Grand Prix win at the 2015 Cannes Lions. The duo went on to win 5 Silver Lions in Film at the 2017 Cannes Lions for Geico’s “Crushed” campaign. Their new television pilot “Oversharing” recently premiered at the 2018 Tribeca Film Festival.
Terri Timely recently released their short film “Lazy Susan,” which premiered at the Hammer Museum as part of the FLUX Film Series and became a Staff Pick on Vimeo.
