If you want to reduce the tilt, you can do any one of these things (these apply specifically to your release, as shown on this video):

* keep the same wrist action you have now, but flick the fingers downward to allow the ball to roll off the fingers as you release it (I call that "roll the dice")

* uncup the hand while turning it, then make a fist after the ball is out of the thumb but while it's still on the fingers. ( I call that "make a fist")

* keep the hand behind the ball more and drive through the release by accelerating the swing after the thumb is out. (I left this to last, because it requires more change to your release style)

I think the high tilt you have is because you're not letting the ball roll off your fingertips. Probably a result of the timing problems mentioned above.... So you might find that fixing the timing fixes the release smile
Any of the above should improve tilt while simply tweaking your release.
