Firefly's video services are handled by Co-Founder Ryan Shepheard.
Ryan has brought his film, graphic, and technical talents to bear on projects for national outlets like PBS, History, Smithsonian Channel, Science Channel, SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment, and the National Park Service, among others. His editing credits include "Mystery Sub" and "Sputnik Declassified" (CINE Golden Eagle recipient) for PBS science series NOVA, several episodes of Deep Sea Detectives for History, short film "Walk On By" directed by Lisa Wolfinger, and independent documentary feature The Rivals directed by Kirk Wolfinger. In 2008 he collaborated with Watching Place Productions to edit and author Language Keepers, a seven DVD set funded by the National Science Foundation to document the endangered Passamaquoddy language.
At the beginning of 2010 Ryan seized an opportunity to expand into 3D, working with the Advanced Imaging and Visualization Laboratory at Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution to develop and implement 3D post-production workflows. That fall he joined RMS Titanic, Inc.'s expedition to the wreck of Titanic, consulting on and operating the shipboard 2D and 3D recording and archival systems. Most recently Ryan was supervising and online editor for several short films for 3net, the new 3D channel by Discovery, Sony and IMAX.
