Hello fellow creatives! My name is Riley Rheyan, welcome to my website! Here you can find my film & tv portfolio and photography. I'm a filmmaker in my mid 20's grinding away in the industry, paying my dues and navigating the muddy waters of the many many ways to form a career as an independent creator. I've been working in the film and television industry in Vancouver (AKA Hollywood North) in various roles since 2011. I'm all about film, what's currently happening in the industry, and collaborating with my fellow filmmakers.
I chose a career in film because I've wanted to work in movies since I was five! I got into the film industry as soon as I possibly could, even begging my mum to let me quit school when I was 12 so I could start working. In my opinion school was for people who didn't know what they wanted to do but I didn't have that problem! Mum was not convinced. So at 18 I got outta dodge, moved to Vancouver and went straight to film school. I'm nothing short of obsessed with film and tv, and am very driven.
Practically everything I do is geared towards my career in film. Currently I split my time between working union and non-union, when I work in the union world (to make money) I work as a Producer or Director Assistant which thankfully gives me an opportunity to learn a lot on the job and network with people. When I work non-union (to promote myself as a creator) I spend my time writing and directing, building my career so that I can take the leap and slowly work as a creator full time and make a living. This is my journey.
