TYLER HUGHEN, Director | Producer - Tyler has spent most of his life either on the water or in the mountains.  Growing up surfing in Encinitas, working summers as a fly fishing guide in Colorado and a formal media arts education in Montana led to joining an oceanographic expedition team with SIO where he has traveled the globe and clocked over 300 days at sea.  Life changing trips like paddling 1,000 miles across the Northwest Territories and dropping out to captain a small sailboat down the coast of Mexico for a year have left Tyler with a deep resourcefulness that he brings to any production.

Tyler's debut documentary "Low and Clear" was named by Paste Magazine as "the best documentary of the year" and went on to make the same publications "top 100 documentaries of all time" list.
