My favorite memory at Kings LA would be the time I spent filming during Ryan’s class.
We got individual feedback from him while working on our projects, he encouraged all the students often and made sure that everyone participated and did their work. I am currently majoring in film and media arts, and it was my first time having a teacher like Ryan. I loved his course!
