About Me

I'm a regular guy who loves creating content.

I've been in love with production since I was 8 years old. I grew up in Delta Junction, Alaska where I found my passion for video and along the I way picked up a knack for other mediums, especially animation. I also have a beautiful wife, Tessa, and an energetic son, Lincoln.

Client Testimonial

“Tybee is probably one of the most gifted imagery professionals I've had the pleasure of working with. His vision in cinematography is unparalleled, and his creative intellect surpasses most of those that have had twice his tenure in the industry. What's even more amazing is he would never tell you that himself and loves to teach others. He's a consummate professional and lifelong learner, making the prospect of him falling behind in media advancements an impossibility. Don't sleep on this kid.”

— Roswell A. Sartwell, U.S. Air Force Veteran and Leadership Development Instructor, Clear Creek Independent School District

“This guy has dug me out of more graphics/animation/video holes than I can count. It's hard for me to even understand how someone so young can already be so well-versed in everything from advanced cinematography to character animation. I'm counting down the days until he gets out of the military so I can try and get him to join my team! ”

— Russ Jackson, Marketing Director, Southern Air

My Services

Cinematography/Video Production

Whether it be documentary and news capturing or full blown commercial production, I have always loved being behind the camera and capturing beautiful images in motion.

The best part about animation is that nothing comes for free. Your're building a world from the sound up and I love the oppurtunity to create on such a large scale off of someone's creative vision, 3D or 2D. Whether that means corporate motion graphics or character-driven animated shorts, it's one of my favorite mediums to work in.

Sometimes there are moments that are best seen in a still image. I'm a U.S. Air Force certified photographer and I'm always down for events, portraits, family photos and especially landscape photography.

Audio Production

Sound is more than half the experience in most of my work. If sounds bad, you're good imagery won't save you. I can cover your needs for scoring, cleanup, or just standard audio work.
