Endorsements:

"Tyler Thomson is quite simply the best pre-viz artist that I have ever worked with. His strengths in dynamic shot design, composition, animation, and overall cinematography have been indispensable to me as a director. He has single-handedly led some of the most challenging sequences that we have put on screen. His exemplary work and enthusiastic, hard-working attitude is nothing short of inspiring to everyone around him. Tyler is a consummate filmmaker, through and through, and I wouldn't want to make another film without him."

Dean DeBlois  director - How to Train YourDragon 2

"Tyler Thomson is more than an artist - he's a filmmaker and a visionary.  He not only makes the films he is on better, he makes the process better.  Wish every movie I worked on had Tyler on board as part of the creative team."

Grant Curtis  producer - Spider-Man 3

 

"Tyler is easy to integrate into any team, he is production tested, battle scared with creativity and in my experience strives to make every element of every frame count!
