RYAN BOOTH IS A FILMMAKER BY WAY OF PHOTOGRAPHY, BY WAY OF AUDIO ENGINEERING, BY WAY OF COLLEGE, BY WAY OF TEXAS.
Ryan Booth is a director living in Texas. Booth’s filmmaking career took off in 2011 when his first short film won a contest hosted by Vimeo and Canon and premiered at Sundance Film Festival.
He spent the next few years cutting his teeth as a Director of Photography, working on commercial projects for MTV, Spotify, Under Armour, Pepsi, and Home Depot, as well as music videos for Atlantic Records, Sony, and Universal Music. He DP’d two documentary features in 2015, one of which was commissioned by Alejandro G. Iñárritu, Academy Award-winning director of Birdman, that explores the modern implications of the themes woven into Iñárritu’s latest film, The Revenant. In 2013, he was the cinematographer for This is Where We Live, a narrative feature that premiered at SXSW and had a successful festival and theatrical run.
In addition to DP projects, Booth has been taking on more and more directing work. Most recently, his directing has attracted the attention of Pulse Films, the award winning production company behind Beyonce’s Lemonade and the Cannes Prix du Jury winner, American Honey. Booth has multiple directing projects in the works with Pulse, including a television show set to begin production in the summer of 2016
