Profile Information

About Me:(Generous response attract more interest)
Tylon "U-Savior" Washington is a filmmaker, journalist and media activist with BW Moving Images.Born in Harlem, NY and raised in East New York, Brooklyn, early and frequent exposure to cinema cemented his budding passion for the silver screen. From a very young age one of his favorite pastimes was to sit in a darkened theater mesmerized by the larger than life projections. Today, Tylon has a personal movie collection of over 6,000 films.
Washington experienced the honor of a lifetime when he got the chance to meet and work with his mentor Melvin Van Peebles on his film “Confessionsofa Ex-Doofus Itchy Footed Mutha”. Not only did he learn from Mr. Van Peebles, he was also featured in the film and some of the scenes were shot at Washington’s Jersey City film studio. Washington also cites Oscar Micheaux and Spike Lee as inspirations.
Tylon had some early success as a music producer working with independent and major record labels but he realized that through film he could incorporate all art forms to connect with his audience in a more visceral capacity.
Before trying his hand at film however, he ventured into television and executive produced "The Ghetto Chronicles", a weekly talk show hosted by Nana Soul.
With a successful television show under his belt, Tylon was ready to turn his sights to the big screen. The documentary short film "Confessions of a Liberal Actor-vist" was his directorial debut. It features a one man show written by actor Erik-Anders Nilsson (Rescue Me, Che) that takes on everything from the war in Iraq to George Bush’s controversial win over Al Gore.
Washington directed the controversial documentary film "Disappearing Voices The Decline of Black Radio", which chronicles the rise and fall of an art form unique to America. The film touches on the impact of Black jocks both on and off the air and features interviews with prominent figures in American society like Al Sharpton, Chuck D of Public Enemy, and former FCC Commissioner Jonathan Adelstein, as well as air checks by famous jocks like Frankie "Hollywood" Crocker, Jocko Henderson and Eddie O'Jay. In 2009, the Congressional Black Caucus featured “Disappearing Voices” during a discussion of the state of Black radio during the Annual Legislative Conference. “Disappearing Voices” also enjoyed a mainstream theatrical release in Chicago's Ice Theaters, with significant support from WVON Radio.
Still passionate about radio, Washington is heading up the Go Pro Radio Network, an online radio network that features shows like "The Kae and Gus Show" with Gus Heningburg of NBC's “Positively Black” and Kae Thompson of WLIB Radio’s “Urban Notebook”.
Currently, Tylon is directing three documentary films: "Diary of the Dragon: The (R) Evolution of Fred Ho" featuring the controversial Fred Ho, an Asian American internationally renowned baritone saxophonist, composer, arranger, band leader, writer, producer and social activist who has been fighting advanced colo-rectal cancer since 2006. He is also directing the documentary "A Strong Will", the story of attorney Wilfredo Benitez and his poignant rise to success from hardship and adversity. The third film is “No Fear” which features the story of whistleblower and human rights activist Marsha Coleman-Adebayo and her courageous fight not only for the rights of South African miners being poisoned by vanadium, but for their lives. Her story is so powerful and compelling that Danny Glover is producing a feature inspired by her struggle.
Tylon is also starting an initiative called YourStory; a service which allows any and every one affordable access to professionally produced personal documentaries of varying lengths. Through all of his multimedia endeavors, Washington strives to create platforms for people to tell their stories, cement their legacies and preserve the oral tradition of passing down history for generations to come.

I believe there's a typo on the fourth line. The word "the" appears instead of "then".

Thanks for your careful consideration.
