Ryan Boekenkroeger is a videographer and editor with projects for businesses, audio and dance performers, team and individual sports providing creative input and technical expertise and contributing to the results used by his clients and partners. Most recently Ryan edited all the video compilations for Sally Taylor’s Consenses Project often under rigorous pressure and time constraints, providing creative filming with dramatic and beautiful editing.
Ryan was inspired by goals of the Consenses Project and discovered from his participation the value of a collaborative process in stimulating new ideas and directions. Videos created compiled the collaborative works procured from 140 artists around the world. Ryan edited together the moving media of dancers, songwriters and filmmakers with the stationary works of photographers, painters, sculptors and poets creating short films, which depicted the journey of the artists’ collaboration. Sally Taylor said, “He didn’t blink at the challenge. I have been impressed with his motivation, his fearless willingness to try new things, the way he communicates his ideas, his promptness, his creativity and enthusiasm.” Ryan created a successful solicitation video for the Consenses crowd funding campaign.
Ryan is the Videographer for the Merrimack Valley Pride of the Eastern Semi-Professional Football League, filming games, doing breakdowns for the coaching staff and supervising game time support personnel.

For the Boston Breakers Women’s Professional Soccer team Ryan shot and recorded games for player analysis, coaches and the league.
Ryan was an editor at MIT’s Academic Media Production Services department in their Open Course group; now morphed into the OpenCourseWare collaboration (edX) between Harvard and MIT.
