He has also received a Visual Effects Society award nomination for Best Visual Effects of the Year for his work on Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire.

Rango also won the Visual Effects Society Award and the Annie Award for best animated film. After his foray in animation, Tim supervised work on the big-screen feature film adaptation of The Lone Ranger, which earned him a Visual Effects Society Award for Outstanding Supporting Visual Effects in a Feature and was nominated for an Academy Award® for Best Visual Effects. In 2015, he served as the overall Visual Effects Supervisor on Colin Trevorrow’s Jurassic World.
