Tyler Freeman Smith is a lanky documentary filmmaker from Tasmania, Australia, now freelancing in the UK and Europe.

His work covers the breadth of documentary, from features and TV broadcast, to short-form branded content and social. Tyler is known for his empathetic approach to contributors, open communication with collaborators, compelling visuals and narrative understanding. He is often producing and directing documentary in the field, and shooting stylised sequences and verité. More and more he finds himself working with feature filmmakers as a story consultant, with projects in development in New York, Warsaw, Australia and the UK.

Tyler’s formal training is as an environmental scientist, and he is a current fellow of the Royal Geographical Society. He is currently in late-development on his first feature length documentary, a documentary-fantasy about bears set in Slovenia
