I'm Ryan Lannum. I have been making videos ever since I was about 10, when I discovered Windows Movie Maker on my mom's laptop. I started with just editing pictures into a video, and I thought it was really cool. Later I asked for a cheap video camera for christmas, and I started to make very simple videos. I was pretty much obsessed with it for years. When I turned 12 or so, I made a youtube channel. I remember using copyrighted music, and having about 3 channels being suspended, because back then no copyrighted music was allowed. I then decided that my next channel should be serious, and it should have a memorable name. I decided "RDLgo" since my initials are "RDL" and I thought "go" just sounded memorable.On youtube, there's a channel called "Smosh" who has over 5 million subscribers. Back then, When they had like 500,000 subscribers, I was inspired by them. I made lots of little skits like they did, trying to also add my own style. I made lots of videos, and they have improved as I had practiced my filming/editing skills. Over the years, I have made over 80 videos on RDLgo, and I still make them to this day.
As smosh on youtube was my first inspiration to start making videos, I have many people today that inspire me. Probably the director who inspires me the most is Christopher Nolan. Christopher Nolan has directed 4 of my favorite movies of all time: Memento, The Prestige, The Dark Knight, and Inception. I have also recently seen Insomnia, which, while it is his weakest film, is still a great movie. Batman begins and The Dark Knight Rises are also great movies by him. I have been a huge fan of him ever since I saw The Dark Knight in theaters (2008). Since I really want to get a job in the film industry, he is my biggest inspiration. Other directors who also inspire me are Steven Spielberg, Tim Burton, David Fincher, Danny Boyle, Quentin Tarantino, and Martin Scorsese.
I love making videos, and hope to make many more in the future.
