Who, what, when, where, and why.




Subjectively True is the repository of personal and professional projects by Ryan Malloy, a documentary filmmaker based in San Francisco, CA. He is interested in framing the stories of urban landscapes and the people who find their way in them. His documentary pursuits are enriched by his years of work as an urban planner. He hopes to bring focus to the spontaneous ways people interact with the built environment and the effects of urban policies on their lives.

Ryan has worked in both production and post-production roles on a wide variety of documentary and client projects. His own short documentary films have screened in festivals around the world and have won several awards. Ryan is a graduate of Wesleyan University and holds a master’s degree in urban planning from the University of Michigan and an M.F.A. in Documentary Film and Video from Stanford University.
