Ryan Berry Productions

Ryan Berry Productions is a full service video and multimedia production company specializing in marketing and entertainment. We develop content for major networks, Fortune 500 corporations, NGOs, nonprofits and individuals.

Great storytelling is at the heart of everything we do.

Our philosophy is as follows: Captivating video is created from a delicate balance of the creative and technical. Pretty pictures without a story leave the viewer wanting more. A great story is so much less than what it could be with compelling visuals and sound.

We combine the art and the science of filmmaking to create stories that resonate.

The Team

I can't do it all alone. I have hand picked an incredible team - the crew of freelancers and specialists that work with me on a project-to-project basis provide the best fit possible for each production. Whatever your story calls for, we scale up or scale down to get you that custom tailored fit you deserve.

Some background on Ryan

Like any other Hollywood director or local TV news producer, my love for making movies started at a young age. I'll never forget the giant shoulder-mount RCA VHS camcorder that my parents got for the family sometime in my middle school years. Side bar - before that we had a tiny super-8 camera that I was not allowed to touch. I cast my brothers and friends for ridiculous short movies and fake commercials; camera in hand I would yell, "I have another idea, let's go make a movie!" So we'd stay up all night and wire the VCRs, microphones, and Super Nintendo - "Mario Paint" makes a great title generator - across the living room floor. Needless to say, here I am some two decades later still having the time of my life.

While still in high school, I enrolled in a technical school and began studying video production and engineering. This landed me my first internship at a local low-power TV station. That internship quickly turned into a job and that job turned into a position as production manager and engineer of the station. I gained an immeasurable amount of hands on experience while at TV-17, being the sole individual responsible for every technical aspect of the broadcast and managing every production that went to air. Between local sports coverage, talk shows, TV ads, and the whole nine yards, I was a very busy 18 year old. During some point in my experience there, the GM came to me with an unusual request: we needed to produce an extra two hours of content to meet the standards required to keep the station on the local cable system. I love music and sketch comedy, so naturally I created a music variety show aptly titled "The Set: Loud and Live". Over two hours, LIVE every Saturday night, we would broadcast a music, comedy and live call-in show hosted by yours truly. With the help of all of my friends - professional and 'otherwise' – this happened every Saturday night for several years.

Eventually TV-17 ran into financial troubles and went out of business. So what did I do? Started my own company, of course! Shortly thereafter the show was picked up by ABC affiliate WHSV TV3 in the next town over. So I picked up and moved to Harrisonburg, VA, took a day job at the station working in the news department, and in a few short months, I began producing many hours of content and hundreds of TV ads while still producing, directing and hosting "The Set."

After TV3, the next step forward on my career path was to found DIGICO shoot | post | design. I began making TV commercials out of my bedroom with gear accumulated from my show and previous production company. DIGICO grew rapidly and took me many places and introduced me to a lot of people. I enjoyed my time there and it ultimately led me here.

So where exactly is here? I've traveled as far as Alaska shooting documentary films, interviewed celebrities, and filmed at the White House. I've worked for some fantastic clients and helped brand large corporations, I've hosted my own cheesy local TV show and I've created national broadcast campaigns. Looking back on it all, I've come to realize that I'm still here, in the backyard with my brothers and that old RCA VHS camera.

Regardless of the storyline or the tools I may use to tell it, my passion from day one has been this: work hard to create something I'm proud of and share it with others.

Nothing is more rewarding to me than to see someone react - with laughter or tears - to one of my creations. I get excited each and every time, and I really love what I do. It's still shocking to me that I actually get paid to do this.

So... let's go make a movie!
