About Tyler Measom:

A skilled producer, Measom has assembled projects large and small. Having traveled the globe with productions, he knows how to get a crew into customs and out of jail. He is also a talented cinematographer who is adept at making pretty footage while pretentiously pointing at things, a trait learned from reading American Cinematographer Magazine.

Measom's creativity, hard work and knowledge of the industry makes him an ideal candidate for directing, producing or book signings (bring your own book). Measom lives in the lovely hamlet of Salt Lake under the shade of a large oak tree.

Jennilyn Merten is a partner in Left Turn Films, whose current production, Sons of Perdition, has just been picked up by the BBC.  Jenni has directed and edited mini-documentaries for Deseret Book, and been the creative director/writer of commercial campaigns for Novell, Check City, and an episode of the Reality T.V. show HomeTeam.
