Tyler C. Peterson is best known as the Writer / Director of short films Copper & Wool and Summer Hill, as well as being the founder of Lux Daze Media. Raised in rural Maryland, Tyler graduated from Towson University with a Bachelor's Degree in film and a thirst for challenging industry ideologies. Living in Baltimore, he began exploring both his voice as a Writer / Director and his own queer identity. With a passion for leading projects that put diversity as a priority both in-front of and behind the camera, he established Lux Daze Media in 2015.
Tyler's third short film, Summer Hill, premiered at the sold-out Lux Daze Media Showcase, where his involvement as a Co-Producer on feature documentary Mom & M was also announced. Summer Hill has gone on to win Best Narrative Short at the North Beach American Film Festival 2019, Audience Choice for Narrative Short at the Cecil County Film Festival 2019, and play in nine festivals. Also garnering industry recognition, Mom & M has received multiple awards, and been screened in over ten festivals including Maryland Film Festival 2021 and Geena Davis' Bentonville Film Festival 2021.
Now based in Los Angeles, Tyler is developing Summer Hill into a feature-length film with co-writer Amanda Ferrarese, and promoting his latest directorial project Copper & Wool, an improvised 16mm short film.
