Horton first joined Uppercut in 2017 after a stint as an assistant editor at Whitehouse Post. Stepping up as editor he’s cut notable projects, such as a recent Nike campaign “Letters to Heroes,” a series launched in conjunction with the US Open that highlights young athletes meeting their role models, including Serena Williams and Naomi Osaka. He also has cut campaigns for brands such as Asics, Hypebeast, Volvo and MOMA.
“From the beginning, Uppercut was always intentionally a boutique studio that embraced a collaborative of visions and styles — never just a one-person shop,” says Uppercut EP Julia Williams. “Tyler took initiative from day one to be as hands-on as possible with every project and we’ve been proud to see him really grow and refine his own voice.”
Horton’s love of film was sparked by watching sports reels and highlight videos. He went on to study film editing, then hit the road to tour with his band for four years before returning to his passion for film.
