My name is Tyler Knowles and I am an award-winning Filmmaker currently based out of Lansing, Michigan.

I was raised in rural Wisconsin and educated at the University of Wisconsin - Madison, one of the world’s leading universities in Film Theory. My love for filmmaking began at an early age, experimenting with stop-motion animation and attempting to get my family and friends to act in staged home movies with me at the helm of the productions. In high school, I began shooting and editing shorts using Mini-DV cameras and non-linear video editing software. While at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, I learned, and expanded my knowledge of, Apple’s Final Cut Pro, which led me to a job with Apple, Inc in 2006 teaching the entire Final Cut Studio editing suite across Southern California. It was at this time that I began editing feature-length work. In ten years in SoCal, I edited six feature films, numerous National and Regional commercials, industrial videos, demo reels, shorts, and the list goes on. My first feature film sold to Lionsgate, my second premiered at Cannes Film Festival, and I have since received numerous accolades and awards, including two TELLY AWARDS in June 2013, a third in 2014, fourth in 2017, and a Producers Guild of America mentorship for placing 2nd in The 2013 Weekend Shorts Contest. In 2016, I relocated to Lansing, Michigan, where I work at MSU’s Connected Mathematics Project and continue to freelance in the production world.
