Awesomeness Films will release its documentary Snervous Tyler Oakley, about digital star Tyler Oakley, in December 2015 through a limited theatrical release and globally on all major digital platforms. Directed by Amy Rice (By The People: The Election Of Barack Obama), the film follows the life and career of 26 year-old Oakley through his sold out Slumber Party tour across the U.S., UK and Ireland.
Producers of the film include Awesomeness Films’ Brian Robbins and Matt Kaplan, along with Tyler, Korey Kuhl, Lisa Filipelli and Laura Flanagan.
After eight years of sharing snippets of his life online, audiences will see a different side of Oakley — his relationship with family, followers and fame on his sold-out international tour.
Oakley uploaded his first video in 2007 while he was a freshman at Michigan State. He now has over 350 videos online with over 490 million views, over 7 million subscribers and 21 million followers on social media. He has become one of the biggest social media stars of his generation working with many collaborators including Grace Helbig, Jenna Marbles, Hannah Hart, Tanya Burr, and Darren Criss.
From being a resident advisor on campus to a teacher’s assistant, Oakley likes to give back to the community as well. He is a big supporter of the Trevor Project where he raised over $1 million for the organization. In 2014, he received the Teen Choice Award for Choice Male Web Star and Choice Web Collaboration as well as the Streamy Award for Entertainer of the Year and Activist Icon of the Year. In addition, he has written his own book titled Binge.
Oakley is repped by Big Frame.
