Tyler Ludowitz is a filmmaker, analog photographer, and traveler from Topanga California. Born in 1986, he decided to drop out of college when he was 22 and travel the world. After getting his super 8mm camera and film stolen in Europe, he went back to America determined to make a feature length documentary entirely on 8mm film.

After working a summer in a Fish Processing Factory in Homer Alaska, he saved up and bought a one way ticket to India and spent eight months traveling around Asia filming what eventually became Quiet Place in the Universe, his first feature film which was awarded an Exceptional Merit Prize at an The World Global film festival competition. It has since been called a cult classic and one of the greatest films of all time.

He has since gone on to travel to over 40 countries in over eight years of traveling. He is currently teaching English in Asia now. "I shoot film because I prefer the tonality and colors of how it looks over digital. Plus, it is tangible, so if my hard drive crashes I won’t loose all my photos. Also, it allows me to create art at a much faster pace than filmmaking, which can take several years just to complete one project.”
