It's been a good year for Chicago native Tyler Ross. Coming off of stellar reviews for his work in the Chicago-made indie NATE AND MARGARET, Tyler headed west and soon found himself starring alongside Shareeka Epps (of HALF NELSON fame) in the Sundance pick AMERICAN MILKSHAKE. Our Mike McNamara caught up with Tyler to chat about his whirlwind of a year and his character of Jolie in this newly released indie. Enjoy this week's FILMMAKER FOCUS!
