TYLER SAVAGE

After growing up in Los Angeles, Tyler Savage attended NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts. He then returned to LA to work in development at Warner Bros. Ready for a change, he soon left the studio to become Terrence Malick’s assistant, working at the director’s side on four back- to-back features. After nearly four years in Austin, Tyler left his position with Malick and returned to LA to write full-time. ​

He is beyond grateful for the support he had in making his rst feature.
