Tyler Rabinowitz is a 22-year-old filmmaker and recent graduate of New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts with a major in Film and Television and a minor in Children and Adolescent Mental Health Studies who was named one of Variety Magazine’s “Students to Watch” in their 2015 Education Impact Report.
In 2011, Tyler was named a U.S. Presidential Scholar in the Arts—a title awarded by President Barack Obama to 20 young artists. The White House deems this the highest honor a student can receive in the United States of America. His films have been on exhibition at the Smithsonian American Art Museum, shown at the Kennedy Center, and led to his recognition by the National YoungArts Foundation as a 2011 Winner in Cinematic Arts.
In 2013, Tyler represented NYU in the front row of a United Nations conference for college students led by Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon, titled “Building Towards the Future.” He also gave a TED talk titled, “The Characters We Grow Up With” at TEDxNYU’s winter symposium.
Tyler has previously worked for Warner Bros., Sesame Workshop, Avy Kaufman Casting, and volunteered for the Heart Gallery—an organization that expedites the family matching process for orphaned children. At the Heart Gallery, Tyler made videos of six children to help them find their “forever families,” and within six months all of them found homes. Last year, Tyler was named one of the Top 200 directors for Season 3 of HBO’s Project Greenlight (Prod. Matt Damon and Ben Affleck).
Currently, Tyler develops media concepts for children’s television from short digital segments to animated series pitches.
