Tim Breitbach

is smack dab in the middle of a career filled with award-winning docu-series, reality shows and feature films. After a 20-year start as a advertising copywriter and creative director in San Francisco, Breitbach and his business partner wrote Dopamine, the award-winning narrative feature which debuted at the 2003 Sundance Film Festival. From there he moved from advertising into the world of documentary filmmaking with a feature focused on WW2 pilots who still flew in the San Francisco Sherif's Air Squadron. That experience with the greatest generation cemented his trajectory into docu-series. In 2007 he joined Coolfire Studios and with Jeff Keane and Steve Luebbert created the original entertainment division of the company. In his decade at Coolfire he helped develop and Executive Produce close to 20 shows including Fast n' Loud, Welcome to Sweetie Pies, Resale Royalty and Salvage City to name a few. Since 2017 he has been running his own entertainment company, Optimal Entertainment and creating series, documentaries and films for domestic and international distribution.
