Audio & Videos
As a performer, Ryan Millar frequently finds himself on stage, on camera or behind a microphone. Sometimes it’s performing in or hosting a show or event, acting for film or TV, giving a speech, or hosting his podcast, Remote Pep Talks with Ryan Millar.
It can sometimes be for corporate events or videos, sometimes it’s because a live performance is being recorded. Occasionally it’s just because I want to.
Here are a few samples. More can be found on my YouTube page. Or on Soundcloud.
Storytime at Home: Episode 1 | 600%: At the start of lockdown, way back in spring 2020 I made a series called ‘Storytime at Home’, in which I well, tell stories at home. This is an example and the rest of them can be found on the ‘Storytime at Home’ playlist on YouTube.
Ryman Illar: High Noon: My rap alter ego tends towards literate wordplay, but in this case, steers right into western storytelling.
Anson Dashwell’s Toughest Case: In this entirely improvised interactive show I play Anson Dashwell, down-on-his-luck hard-boiled film-noir detective. As you’ll see, my secretary lets in a dame, a dame with a problem as deep as the Hudson River, and things quickly go delightfully off the rails.
Ryan Millar improv workshops – A terrific short video of one of my improv workshops, filmed and edited by my friend Henk Raam of Storytailors.nl
Ryan Millar – Corporate Acting Reel: This is a short selection of the corporate video gigs I’ve done recently. Featured clients include Philips, Comedy Central, Walibi and Tracelink.
Ryman Illar – The Upside of Downtime On my summer break I wrote a rap verse that started out being about work ethic, but ends up taking a turn in another direction. So I rapped it at home over the instrumental of Ugly Duckling’s “We’re Here” on vinyl. And this was the result.
Ryman Illar – Nobody’s Perfect Made a proper video for my rap song Nobody’s Perfect. Words and raps: R. Millar; Music production: D. Schmoll; Camerawork: V. Rebecchi; Editing/visual design: WS Oman.
One Man’s Marbles – Here’s a solo improv set from the Amsterdam Improv Marathon 2017
Anthony Black – I played an illusionist for a Belgian TV show called “De neus van Pinokkio”
The Pitch at IMPRO Amsterdam 2014 – Here’s a short version of my improvised film format The Pitch, which I performed in the Late Night Programme at IMPRO Amsterdam.
Freestyle at the Horse & Stables in London 2016 – Here’s a video of me trying to keep up with a pretty speedy beat while freestyling at an improv show in London.
Milk for breakfast – During a photo/video shoot with a casting agent I was asked to do some solo improv. Of course I obliged.
Ryman Illar – High Noon This is a new hip hop track I made with David Schmoll doing all the production work.
Ryan Millar – VO Demo Here’s a sample of my voiceover work.
