Short Film: XII

I had forgotten…

I recently wrapped post production on a short film titled “XII”, which I starred in, directed, wrote, and edited. The story is a mystery horror set in a ghost town, which was shot in the Mojave Desert. It was a spiritual sequel to my “Hope in the Desert” film from years ago, which was one of the first short films I ever created. However, the stories are completely separate. Enjoy!

It can also be found on vimeo, if you click here.

Music Video: A Toast

I recently collaborated with Atlanta artist Shac from da3 to write and direct a music video entitled “A Toast”, where the artist looks back at those who have boosted him to success. Feel free to check it out! The credits for all other crew member and actors are in the video description.

New Short Film: The Scarecrow’s Choice

Check out my new short film:

The Scarecrow’s Choice from Tyler Thompson on Vimeo.

If you prefer YouTube, click here.

The film focuses on making choices in life, portraying a Scarecrow forced to either accept or reject his roots in being a fearful, wretched creature. It was written, directed, and stars myself. Narration was performed by Olivia Otts, and camera operation was executed by Robert Thompson.

In other news: I have chosen to move away from calling my channel “Golden King Media” to simply “Tyler Thompson”. I have made this change for a few reasons, mainly simplicity. My channel can be found at now, and I will attempt to update all the links on my site.

Also: I have created a film and photography Instagram channel, at @hellotylerfilms. Give it a follow for the first look at my latest work!

My New Site!

Welcome to my new website!

The logo for Golden King Media

I’ve redesigned everything so this site can work mainly as a portfolio. Since I became inactive on this website a few years ago, I’ve discovered the major passion in my life is filmmaking. The site will mainly be dedicated to posting short films from my Vimeo page for my filmmaking company Golden King Media. Click here to see my Film Project page with my artist’s statement and more information.

I’ve also discovered my love for photography, and my site will feature my photography projects as well. My first published project is titled “Reflections”, where I used a mirror in my photos to reflect objects in the background to the center of the viewer’s attention. Click here to visit the page for that project.

The rest of my notable work is found under Previous Work, which includes the iPad app I worked on, the Podcast I had, and more!

Make sure to check back for my latest work, and subscribe to my Vimeo channel to keep up with my latest film projects!

Lego LittleBigPlanet 3: Sackboy and the Gang Battle a Titan!


Recently, I submitted an idea to LEGO Ideas. LEGO Ideas is a website where you can submit new ideas for LEGO sets or themes. To get LEGO to actually consider your idea for a set, you must get 10,000 supporters in one year. I’m just going to come out and ask everybody to please vote for me!!


Above is what the set would look like. The “Titan” is the final boss in LittleBigPlanet 3, and I have included all of the characters from the game. The “bomb” is for Swoop to throw into the Titan machine, and the redish block is for Toggle to break through and not get thrown off the machine. All of the minifigure pieces are from previous minifigs, so the only new things are new stickers. Please watch the video below if you would like to see the set in Lego Digital Designer and for instructions on how to support. Thanks again, and please support and tell your friends!

Guardians of the Galaxy Movie Review/Trivia!

Hey guys! I’m back with another video, where I review Guardians of the Galaxy. I’ll also be touching on some facts you may not have known about the movie. There are spoilers, so be warned. Make sure to like, subscribe, and leave your comments!


Note: I decided to mention Peter Quill’s dad last-minute and found myself unprepared. I said his dad’s name in the next movie could be Alex, but it’s Adam Warlock. Sorry for any confusion, I’m making a video to talk about his dad specifically.
