Tyler has been passionate about film since his early days of high school. He loves watching and discussing movies with his friends and family, sometimes annoying them with film quips. Since coming to University of Arizona, his interest in music and hip hop has influenced his filmmaking and led him to his senior thesis film about a rising music-video production company. Tyler hopes to move to LA after graduation and pursue a career in film or television development.
Hasan sees film as a way to learn more about life and discover new passions rather than a fixed career path. He has immersed himself in many different areas of filmmaking throughout college and while he has enjoyed every second of every experience, he now plans to embark on a new journey in life, wherever that may be. Whatever he ends up doing, the knowledge he has gained at the University of Arizona Film and Television Program will be invaluable to him and he is excited to discover a new path to travel, carrying everything he has learned so far with him along the way.
