Deri Tyton is an Award-Winning Writer/Producer/Director, who grew up in Chicago enjoying
Kung Fu, comedy, and action movies.
As a very imaginative child growing up, he became interested in how films were made, but it
wasn't until 1999 when he was invited to P.A. on an independent film set, which prompted him to
write the screenplay, TOOT'S & BLOW'S, in 2001.
As a self-taught filmmaker, Deri produced three critically sought-out films: Welcome To The
Southside, The Party Line, and Love Bones. In each of these films, Deri deals with personal
themes of Love & Sacrifice.
While each film has had distribution, it was his latest independent film, FINDING FOREVER IN
LOVE (2015), that has pushed his writing, directing, and producing endeavors to new heights with
a distribution deal at Robert Johnson's streaming channel, Urban Movie Channel.
He has since gone on to co-write web series, independent films, and television series, as well as
produce a screenwriter’s book entitled, The Film Mechanic: The Process To Writing A Screenplay
He holds a Bachelor of Arts in Liberal Arts from Chicago State University and a Master of Fine
Arts in Creative Writing (Class Salutatorian) from Full Sail University.
As a 2017 and 2018 Fulton County Arts & Culture grant recipient in Atlanta, GA, he began The
Film Mechanic Screenwriting Class which teaches writers the process and business of
Deri's truest goal is to tell universal stories through his experiences of being Black in America.
