An in-depth look at the marginalized sport of alpine snowboarding, Another Day in Paradise focuses on the sacrifices and achievements of 32 year-old Tyler Jewell. Tyler’s decade long journey not for fame or fortune, but for passion, includes sacrifices from living out of a car and tent, to finally being the top US Alpine Snowboarder. Filmed by younger brother, Myles David Jewell, ADP is an intimate portrait of what one person is willing to sacrifice for their dream, and whether success is measured by the outcome of the journey, or the journey itself.
Myles David Jewell received his Master of Arts from New York University in Cinema Studies and a Certificate in the Program of Culture and Media. In May 2008, he completed a documentary, My Mom’s Name is Jean? where he moves home for thirty days to call his mom by her first name in hopes of trying to retire from his adolescence and get to know his mom as more than mother. The half hour piece has played film festivals in the U.S. as well as in Europe. Myles has most recently been working full time on two features, The 14th Victim and Another Day in Paradise. Myles also bides his time making other short experimental and essay films. He started a small production company, Pennington Productions, which produces shorts, promos, features, music, writing, and aims to conduct education workshops to promote media literacy in under privileged areas.
