Ryley Burghall is a director with a rare knack for getting great performances whether he’s working with some regular guy off the street or a seasoned actor. He’s in love with photography and despite being a “performance first” director (a label he wears proudly but also kinda hates), it’s just as important to him that the cinematography is as compelling as possible. Ryley loves crafting an emotional story but he’s equally happy when he’s making people laugh – actually for him, the ideal project pulls at your heart strings one second and makes you laugh the next.
