Inspiration and Ethic
In our work we use professional cameras, sets of optics and light, and other shooting equipment.

Precision, detailed and creative work made with passion and care. Working in fast paced environments from early in his career was the perfect training ground. Dreamcastle has never missed a deadline.

Ryan is a lifelong fan of the magical and escapist worlds of Steven Spielberg but also of the absurdist world of art house. These also translate onto stage through the creation of detailed direction and design work. Directing works with precision and lighting often found in film noir. Creativity aside, Ryan loves stories and finding a story to tell, and that includes in more corporate and commercial endeavours too. Finding interesting ways to bring ideas to life.
