Caymanian Art - A New Frontier 19 min
Spectacular footage of Grand Cayman includes crystal clear turquoise waters at Stingray City, Rum Point and Seven Mile beach. Director Ernest Jacob Olde is seen in the water holding a Stingray whilst his voice is heard in voice over explaining that the island was not always this idyllic. “It’s through the arts that we can explore the story of Cayman.”The history of early art in Cayman is introduced through the story of the islands seafaring heritage. Interviews with artists are accompanied by footage of works of art from each decade from the 1960s through the millennium. Jacob’s voice over narration introduces the key shifts in artistic trends as we move through the islands development. B-roll footage and still images include relevant island locations, flora, fauna and pertinent happenings including the building of the new National Gallery on Grand Cayman and the devastation caused by hurricane Ivan in 2004. We see the national gallery as so much more than just a gallery. We see footage of children in both the gallery and the education centre. Interview footage includes the gallery director and the government minister for culture. The closing montage of comments from artists reinforces the importance of the gallery and its permanent collection. Jacob concludes on how Caymanian art “provides us with confidence as a people, and a springboard on which to launch our future.” A final screen explains the delicate balance of government and private funding sources and provides contact details for the gallery.

A Savside Story 29 min
October 2013, I reached a point in my life where I wanted something bigger for myself! Something that could not have been more understood until I had a dream about it. Taking a step back, I started to feel like a child with no care; no care about what people would think of my imagination, and much less to their expectations of me. In this new freedom of self I began writing a story; a story so vivid, so real to me that I couldn't just tell it in a song. I am an artist, I am music, and I've written, directed and edited this short film. Peeled from a chapter of my life, I give to you..... "A Savside Story".

Bright Spot- The Documentary  22 Min

Filmmaker Rob Tyler and Holistic Nutritionist Tamer Soliman are inspired by “Bright Spots,” Jerry Sternin's idea that when we re-embrace successful, traditional practices that have fallen by the wayside, our communities and lives can change for the better. 

The Bright Spot of the Cayman Islands is Coconut Oil, a food that modern research claims is one of the healthiest on the planet. Join Rob and Tamer as they interview experts and the people of the Cayman Islands to discover why coconut oil has lost its place in many Island homes, and how a modern population can be inspired to overcome the hurdles of the past and return this healthy, traditional oil to its kitchens.
