We had the good fortune of connecting with Tyler Johnson and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Tyler, what is the most important factor behind your success?
I value my time so incredibly much and because of that, I try my absolute best to not waste anyone else’s time. Since the beginning, I sent a standard and a goal for myself to only put out content that either stops you in your tracks, alters your perspective, and or leaves you feeling a great emotion. Through social media, we’ve seen every inch of the earth and in it’s best form, which leaves me with the challenge to deliver more unique and complex ways to capture, creating wonder, confusion, and joy through my work. I love combining camera equipment together to create abnormal motion leaving the viewer wondering how it was filmed. I also love finding the most precise moments and details that normally don’t catch the eye. Those methods on top of powerful music that couldn’t fit any better really moves the audience.
Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
After having an incredible 6-year experience working for GoPro as a senior filmer/editor, it was the perfect kick-off to starting my own company. I gained such an immense amount of filmmaking knowledge through countless world-class creatives I was surrounded by daily. While starting up OL’TJP FIlms, I knew I needed to provide the same quality of work we were creating at GoPro and then some. Luckily I had a massive amount of example work from all the years of creating content around the world, as well as a new camera that I had kept up my sleeve to transition into one day. A few months before parting with the company, I invested in a beyond powerful 6K RED Dragon camera that could provide iMax quality content for my work going forward. Being able to provide that type of quality for any client allowed me to put my foot in the door of some incredible opportunities. This on top of all the experience I gained from action cameras, 360 cameras, drones, timeslice rigs, etc. would be yet another reason to hire OL’TJP Films for your next project.
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I’d like to shout out the man upstairs for giving me a passion and vision for my work and always providing me with incredible opportunities. Wouldn’t be where I am today without him watching over me.
