Ryan is so skilled at what he does, that he was invited by Zacuto to take part in their “Revenge of the Great Camera Shootout 2012.” (Ryan was the cinematographer assigned to the RED.) In this episode Ryan talks about his background; how he broke into commercial work; the pros and cons of film school and whether you need to go; and most importantly, he comments on his controversial blog post “Why 1080p is Better than 4K (Or Why I Chose the C100)“.
