Namibian filmmaker.

Tim Huebschle was born on the 24th May 1978 in Reutlingen, Germany, as the second child of a veterinarian father and a politician mother. His family moved to Namibia when Tim was still very young. He finished his schooling in Windhoek and went on to study English & German Literature (including Film Theory) at the University of Cape Town, South Africa. Through his studies in film theory, he discovered the magical medium of film.

In 2001 Tim started making short films while working as intern and later assistant editor at production companies in Berlin, Germany.

2003 he returned to Namibia and began producing documentaries for the national broadcaster (NBC), as well as TV commercials and music videos for a vast array of clients and musicians. All the while he kept on following his passion, making short narrative films, preparing him for his first full length film.
Currently Tim is developing his first feature entitled « Land of the Brave » following the story of Namibia’s most notorious and gruesome serial killer, the B1-Butcher.
