Hi everybody, Tyler here! CinemaTyler is a channel devoted to understanding filmmaking by researching and analyzing the construction of movies, film history, and the great artists who make them. Thank you so much for taking a look at my Patreon page!
I’m a filmmaker from the San Francisco Bay Area now living in New York City. I make videos on film from a filmmaker’s perspective. There is so much to learn from watching movies. When I see a movie I like, I always research what went in to making the film work and how its context in cinema history helped shape the medium. I comb through interviews, articles, books, and documentaries, to learn everything I can about what makes a movie good. I want to share my discoveries with you.
I am constantly working on new ways to increase the enjoyment of my videos. I have been playing around with interactivity and there will usually be extras/surprises included in my video releases.
There are a few series that make up CinemaTyler. They are:
- Making Film: An in-depth look at what went into making a specific aspect (screenwriting, cinematography, production design, etc) or a specific scene of a single film.
- The Kubrick Files: A series devoted to everything Kubrick.
- CinemaTyler Show: A short-form series where I take a specific look at a cinematic technique, point in cinema history, aspect of a film’s construction, ruminations on the medium of film, filming locations, hidden gems, and more!
I am aiming for at most 4 and at least 1 videos per month. Occasionally other projects get in the way or I tackle a beast of a video that takes much longer than normal, but my goal is to release a video every week or two.
Researching and editing these videos takes an incredible amount of time. By supporting my channel, you are helping me devote more time to this channel—it will help me pay for research materials and better equipment, but most importantly, it will help me create more content regularly and help me fund bigger and better series. I really love making these videos and with your help, I can spend more time making these videos and less time taking freelance gigs.
In exchange for your support, you will get access to exclusive rewards for patrons. There are 3 membership levels to choose from, but you can support at any amount you wish (over $1).
