After escaping music school, Tyler Weaver morphed into a writer & transmedia producer. Uttering the words, “what the hell,” he made two historical documentaries, The Fourteen Minute Gap and Withheld In Full. Seeking to make something happier, he released Il Mio Canto Libero, a music video for composer Francesca DiGiovanna and in April, 2009, released his first feature-length film, the music documentary, Gather ‘Round the Mic, filmed in Cleveland and featuring an international cast of musicians. In 2010, he produced a music video for Dolores Dagenais’ Obviously, a trailer for Anthony Schiavino’s acclaimed Sergeant Zero comic book series, launched the Multi-Hyphenate blogazine, and collaborated on three scripts (including the script that became Whiz!Bam!Pow!) with writing partner (in crime), Paul Klein.
An active writer, he has contributed articles to the websites of Jon Reiss, Sheri Candler, the Spectator Arts blog, Write On! Online, the Indie Film Hub, Freethinking Out Loud, and is a regular contributor to Focal Press’ Mastering Film website.
Tyler is currently putting his 20+ years of being a comic book nut to good use, with projects like his current transmedia project, Whiz!Bam!Pow! and the book, Comics for Film, Games & Animation: Using Comics to Construct Your Transmedia Storyworld, to be published by Focal Press in 2012.
In 2007, he released IL MIO CANTO LIBERO, a music video for composer Francesca DiGiovanna and in April, 2009, released his first feature-length film, the music documentary, GATHER ‘ROUND THE MIC, filmed in Cleveland and featuring an international cast of musicians.
Working with the Mary Ferrell Foundation (where he also served as Executive Director) and the Cleveland Professional 20/30 Group, his credits include THE FOURTEEN MINUTE GAP and WITHHELD IN FULL for the Foundation, and the web series HOT SHOTS @ HOT SPOTS with the 20/30 Group.
In 2010, he produced (within a month of each other) a music video for Dolores Dagenais’ OBVIOUSLY, a trailer for Anthony Schiavino’s acclaimed SERGEANT ZERO comic book series, and – for the first time – a wedding collage.
He is presently in active development on a new transmedia project, WHIZ!BAM!POW!, which gives him an excuse to put his 20+years of being a comic book nut to good use.
