Director Biography - Tyler Holender

Born and raised outside New York City, I have been drawn to creativity since I was young. I saw the movie ICE AGE and wanted to turn my basement into a frozen tundra. I gave up after one day of taping cotton balls to the floor. I attempted to paint pictures and become the next Van Gogh nearly every week. Each time, I failed. No matter what artistic endeavor I undertook, I was never able to finish the work. I would always lose interest. After years of starting projects and quitting, I decided I wanted to be a veterinarian. For five years I was set on the idea. One day, I was assigned a project in my ninth grade English class where I had to adapt a short story into a short film. After presenting the first movie I ever made, my teacher asked me, “Do you want to make movies when you grow up?” That changed the course of my life.

Six years later, I am completely obsessed with every aspect of filmmaking, especially directing. My favorite part, though, is the exhilaration I get when people enjoy my work. It is a feeling unlike any other. Knowing that what I create can affect people in powerful ways and possibly change the way they look at the world drives me to improve my craft. About a year ago, I opened a fortune cookie and it read, “Someone is looking up to you. Do not let that person down.” It will always be in my possession.
