Timm dreamed of creating a documentary to inspire and give back to all those in his life. Finishing this film was his final wish.

Make your contribution to help us make his dream a reality.


Timm’s lifelong goal was to surpass Norman Rockwell by completing 323 murals.


This film will follow that journey - the ups and the downs, the achievements and challenges, and the countless lives he touched along the way.


From the CREWMASTERS to Muralist, Pursuing 323 is the Timm Etters story.

Andy began his career as a performing and recording artist in his late teens, spending most of his twenties performing in the Chicagoland area. After reconnecting with his childhood passion for film, he began working as a composer and audio engineer in the indie film industry before launching his own production company, Sonic Palette Productions, in 2017.
