Frames from Recent Videos Directed by Ryan Ashford
Brief Summary
As a multifaceted filmmaker it's always tough to find the right title for myself so I tend to settle on "Director/Producer." I'm an easygoing collaborator and I work with my clients to produce original video and interactive content from concept to completion. I designed and built my own studio in West LA where I write, design, shoot, cut, and occasionally dream up my own custom camera and lighting gadgets. When I'm not directing commercials, promos, or music videos, I am often directing post production workflows for indie features or producing music in a variety of eclectic styles.
