To Those Who Serve
$15 (*Film Block)
In an effort to reflect the power of service through generations, To Those Who Serve answers the question of what ‘service’ means to those who served and are serving. Following its online premiere, the video was aired on CBS Sports during the Veteran’s Classic.
Rylan Tuohy – Director
Rylan Tuohy is a 22-year-old filmmaker and photographer from Greenville, Kentucky. His momentum in new media was sparked by attending Kentucky’s Governor’s School for the Arts and propelled after being shortlisted in the Sony World Photography Awards for the top ten student photographers in 2012. Instead of heading to film school, Rylan wanted a different path to filmmaking by pursuing an undergraduate degree in applied physics at the United States Naval Academy and a graduate degree in project management at the University of Maryland, College Park.
Seen as an opportunity to use his passion for filmmaking in his unique position in the military, Rylan began making creative online content. Now, more than 6.5M views on YouTube, Rylan’s videos have aired on CBS Sports, ESPN, and Fox News with a live interview on Fox & Friends. In addition, Rylan’s Naptown Funk, being screened at the GIFFX, was on CNN’s top videos of 2015. In his spare time, Rylan enjoys “instagraming” his journeys, from sailing to Nova Scotia and Bermuda to hiking in East-Timor.
