About Me

About Me

Ever since I was young I have been a storyteller.

I used to make up stories and act them out with my action figures. I used to pretend I was a superhero saving the world in my bedroom, jumping off my bed with a plastic sword held firmly in my hands. I used to write and draw my own comic books, and sell them to my family members for a quarter each.

I’ve always been a storyteller. Today I am still a storyteller, because today I tell stories through filmmaking.

Filmmaking is creating stop motion animations with your old action figures. It is acting out an action scene where you attack your enemies with a sword from above. It is making a story and trying to sell it to your audience, trying to reel them in with excitement and to teach them through the moral of the story.

I always wanted to tell stories. That is why I am a filmmaker. I use the camera angles to guide the story. I use the actors to convince the audience to believe the story is real. I use the color schemes to set the right mood for the story. And I use the story to teach the audience something, to get in their heads and allow them to learn.

I always wanted to tell stories. That is why I am also a photographer. I use the composition to intrigue the viewer. I use the angle to guide the viewer and tell them where to look. And I illuminate the subject to show the viewer how to look at what they see.

My name is Tyler Thompson. And I do all of these things to tell stories.
