About The Company
Grant Larson Productions is the latest venture from husband-and-wife team Tim and Mary Larson. The company grew out of our first feature production - the award-winning film, Homecoming, by Sean Hackett. We formed the company to develop and produce dramatic feature films, with an emphasis on new filmmakers and strong female roles.
Tim Larson is polymath developer and entrepreneur. He and his family started a textbook and software development company (Larson Texts) in 1984 - a company that today has dozens of best-selling titles with publishing giants Cengage, Pearson, and Houghton-Mifflin Harcourt. He developed one of the first commercial multimedia hypertext engines in 1987 and published over 70 titles with it. He developed the first fully interactive multimedia textbook in 1992 and shepherded it online in 1995. He has written, edited, illustrated, typeset, programmed, and otherwise developed hundreds of successful projects. In 2010, he turned his attention to film - bringing his development and entrepreneurial skills to yet another media form.
