Hi I'm Ryan Ricks

I make movies and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I make movies. Shortly after moving to Utah when I was ten I began to make short films with friends. In 2010 I created my own production company and entered the film industry. I've had the amazing opportunity to work with hundreds of talented professionals at a young age, and begin a successful career in cinema. I am currently preparing to serve a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, where I will be going to Nagoya, Japan.

Why I am a Mormon

I am happier when I live the standards I am taught as a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I am unable to deny that. I am a Mormon because I believe that God has a plan for us, and that his plan will let us return to him. I believe that by living the standards I've been taught, I can live with him again.

How I live my faith

I have had people I've met ask if I have to serve a mission. Heavenly Father has given me many talents. Because of the gifts I have received I am able to work in an exciting field and meet a lot of people. As thanks for that, I have decided to put my career on hold and serve a mission. I don't have to serve a mission; I want to serve a mission. By serving a mission I can show God that I am grateful for everything I've received.
