About me
Yero Timi-Biu is a London-based award-winning writer-director for TV, film and theatre. She specialises in comedy-dramas. Aside from fiction, Yero has been working in the media industry since she was sixteen; from journalism, script editing prime-time TV shows, audio production for documentaries and international radio stations, to press relations and communications. After studying screenwriting in New York, with an appetite to further explore story, Yero was selected as a participant for Soho Theatre’s yearlong Young Company playwright residency, graduating in 2016. In 2018, she won the BFI Future Film Festival New Talent award for her ICA London/Channel 4’s Random Acts commissioned short comedy-drama, Beneath the Surface, where she was writer, co-director and producer. She was then commissioned again by Channel 4’s Random Acts/Little Dots Studios to write the short film Two Minutes in collaboration with illustrator Adebanji Alade. Both films were broadcast online and on TV. She is currently developing her next film Signs with BFI, which she will shoot at the end of the year. Alongside creating her own content, she works full-time on the development team at BBC Films.

  • Two Minutes - Adebanji Alade and Yero Timi-Biu
    Two Minutes - Adebanji Alade and Yero Timi-BiuWhen artist Adebanji Alade returned to the UK from Nigeria in 1999, he decided to draw a picture of a fellow traveller every time he boarded public transport. Writer Yero Timi-Biu used the drawings as a jumping off point for a spoken word piece on the way that public transport both brings together and pushes apart people from every different kind of background as we travel together, apart, usually in silence, observing each other without appearing to look as if that’s what we’re doing.
