About Tyler Measom:

A skilled producer, Measom has assembled projects large and small. Having traveled the globe with productions, he knows how to get a crew into customs and out of jail. He is also a talented cinematographer who is adept at making pretty footage while pretentiously pointing at things, a trait learned from reading American Cinematographer Magazine. 

He has raised millions of dollars for independent productions through private equity, pre-sales, and crowd sourcing--including one of Kickstarter's most successful campaigns.  Measom has been invited to pitch at many prestigious forums including The Sundance Producers Lab, Sundance Film Festival, Hot Docs Forum (twice), MipDoc Cannes Pitch Competition (twice, WINNER 2012), Sheffield MeetMarket (three times), IFP Showcase and the IFP Pitch Competition. 

Measom's creativity, hard work and knowledge of the industry makes him an ideal candidate for directing, producing or book signings (bring your own book). Measom lives in the lovely hamlet of Salt Lake under the shade of a large oak tree.  

About Jennilyn Merten:
