WHO THE FRIG IS TYLER BOYCO?
This is me posing in my stairwell.

This is my poodle, Daisy. Hire me so I can feed her. She eats a lot.
I was born at a very young age in Toronto, Canada, and raised on the mean suburban streets of Keswick (home of Toronto Maple Leafs great Curtis Joseph and Jim Carrey). Growing up in cottage country, there isn't a hell of a lot to do other than skateboard, play hockey and watch movies. My friends and I would cut together skate videos from our old RCA camcorder and perform wrestling "shows" in a makeshift ring in our basements, inviting the entire street to come watch, selling VHS copies to the neighbourhood afterwards. Other kids had lemonade stands - we sold tapes of kids wrestling (in hindsight, that's super creepy). Between my love for entertaining and being brought up on my dad's massive movie collection, it was still somehow a surprise that I wanted to pursue film and television.
Graduating with honours from both Durham College (Digital Video Production & Graphic Design) and Sheridan College (Advanced Television and Film), it wasn't long before I started working in the industry. I landed my first gig under the Spierig Brothers (Jigsaw), who treated me more as a protégé than an assistant. Between them, Peter Block (Crank) and Roger Avary (Lucky Day), I was given the unique experience of watching films come to life. I've watched them blossom from four hour assemblies into their final forms. I have seen what works and what doesn't. Lately, I have been Production Coordinating both indie and big studio features, cutting my teeth in the administrative and logistical side of filmmaking, and know how to run a crew on and off-set.
If I haven't tooted my own horn enough already, I have directed an award-winning short, The Talk, which has premiered at numerous festivals around the world and was a finalist in Kevin Hart's "Eat My Shorts" competition at Just For Laughs 42. I am also the co-creator of the web series Bluebird, which is being developed for television with Don Ferguson Productions. At present, I am in development of my first feature, horror/comedy Whatever Happened to Olivia Boone? I currently reside in the Peterborough, Ontario area with my brilliant fiancee Dayna and my not-so-brilliant poodle Daisy, who love to listen to me talk about my projects all day long.
Let's make stuff, gang. xoxo
