Have you ever wondered what it takes to be a commercial director? If I told you that it takes a lot of losing would you still be interested? Today’s guest has honed the perfect mindset for turning his rejections into personal wins and his career has been taking off ever since.

There’s a good chance many of you have heard of Ryan Booth. He’s a prolific young filmmaker who has worked as a DP and director on commercials for some of the country’s biggest brands. These days, Ryan wears many different hats. As a Brooklyn-based Texan, he directs commercials, pitches documentary series and TV shows, and develops his own features.

In this candid chat, Ryan shares his journey into the world of directing commercials. Getting to where he is today took a lot of focus and determination, as well as a realization of where his true priorities lie. We talk about the power that lies in having other people on board your team who are just as dedicated to getting the project done as you. As someone with talent and experience in so many different areas, Ryan has had to learn how and when to focus his efforts, which has been the key to his continuing success.

How do you pick yourself up after rejection? Leave a comment and let me know on the episode page!


In this episode
  • Realizing where your time is best spent when you have many different priorities at once
  • The dangers of multitasking and knowing when you need help moving from one task to the next
  • How to deal with the bids you lose after you’ve spent so much time preparing them
  • Finding the ideal work-life balance through trial, error, and reflection

“I’ve realized that my lofty ideas will never happen without the dedicated effort of producers.” [12:50]

“I do plenty of detailed mundane boring stuff, but when I’m directing a commercial that’s not my job. My job is to steer the ship. It is to cast the vision. It is to execute that vision. Getting in the weeds is really problematic.” [16:35]

“To pitch well, I have to put myself fully into the project. To do that, I have to be vulnerable to the fact that I will likely lose more than I win.” [20:45]

“Putting your heart into what you make in my opinion is the only long-term viable way to do this for a living.” [25:34]

Episode 41 - Ryan Booth

Art vs. Commerce
Episode artwork
Read more
The Art vs. Commerce podcast is back! After a hiatus the show returns to kick things off with friend of the pod Ryan Booth. We felt Ryan would make for a great guest to relaunch as he has been through so much career change since we last spoke in 2015. In this episode we compare and contrast our previous conversation learning about his journey and what insights he has gained since becoming a repped commercial director on the Pulse Film roster.

Booth’s filmmaking career began in 2011 when his first attempt at making short film won a contest hosted by Vimeo and Canon and premiered at Sundance Film Festival. Booth was an audio engineer living in Texas at the time. After Sundance he came home and quit his job and dove headfirst into filmmaking. 

He spent the next few years cutting his teeth as a Director of Photography, working on commercial projects for Fox, MTV, Spotify, Under Armour, Pepsi, and Budweiser, as well as music videos for Atlantic Records, Sony, and Universal Music. He DP'd narrative and documentary features that have screened at Sundance, SXSW, Tribeca Film Festivals, among others. In 2016, Ryan DP'd a feature documentary that was commissioned by Alejandro G. Iñárritu that explores the modern implications of the themes woven into Iñárritu’s film, The Revenant. The film was directed by Eliot Rausch and the experience working with Eliot and Alejandro proved to be the catalyst that began his transition into directing. 

Ryan has always been drawn to telling the stories of real people. He naturally began his directing work in documentaries. He created a doc series pilot called Five Star, about the insane world of college football recruiting. This led to shopping deals with SpringHill Entertainment and Preferred Content. He naturally moved into branded content, directing projects for Spotify and Google. He then caught the eye of Pulse Films, the award winning production company behind American Honey and Lemonade.

In the spring of 2017 he was offered a spot on Pulse's commercial roster and within  a few months of beginning to pitch, was directing national campaigns with Weiden + Kennedy for Fox Sports and Anheuser-Busch. He's currently pitching as much as possible and looks forward to collaborating with some of the best agencies in the world.

Additionally, Ryan co-wrote and directed his first narrative short, The Heights, as a proof of concept for what would be his first narrative feature. Not one to wait around for permission, he is actively developing a handful of film and television projects with writers and producers from around the world.
