Media Instructor & Filmmaker
Myles graduated from the University of Vermont, where he double majored in English and Anthropology with a Film Studies minor. He then went on to earn a Master of Arts from New York University with an Advanced Certificate in the Program of Culture and Media (technical training in Documentary and Ethnographic filmmaking). After graduate school, Myles began making documentaries (www.strangleholdthemovie.com, www.tylerjewell.com) and experimental films full time (www.mylesdavidjewell.com). To supplement his filmmaking career, he also developed media literacy workshops to promote minimal resource filmmaking in disenfranchised areas. He ran workshops for the San Francisco Film Society’s Filmmaker in the Classroom Program and ran his own independent workshops in the Bay Area, Boston, and Los Angeles.
