Director Biography - Connor Tieulie

At the age of ten, my family made the move from my hometown Spruce Grove, Alberta to my current home Denver, Colorado. I quickly learned Colorado would be a playground for photography when I discovered that it was my passion at a young age. During my sophomore year of high school, I decided to take a step toward my creative career by dropping out and receiving my GED. I was fortunate enough to be able to go directly into studying film at Colorado Film School where I received an associate's degree in Cinematography.

Director Statement

I'm so thankful to have the privilege to ride bikes and the thought of it being taken away in a split second is what drove me to tell the stories of humans who almost had it taken, and it is amazing seeing them rise up and becoming stronger than ever after the accidents.
