T. Ryan Little graduated from BYU in 2000 with a degree in film. Little has now directed and produced a number of films, several of which have received awards at film festivals across the United States.

In 2005 Little directed the historical war drama Saints and Soldiers. The movie was nominated for Independent Spirit Awards, a national award given by the Independent Filmmaker Program (IFP) for first-time directors.

With the help of producer Brian Brough, Ryan directed Everything You Want, based on a play by Natalie Prado. Ryan's project was sold to ABC Family (Disney distribution) and was released on video/DVD in April 2006.

In 2008 Little directed Forever Strong, a film about the unique success of the Highland Rugby team. The film was a nationwide success and was written by fellow alumnus David Pliler.

In 2012 the sequel to Saints and Soldiers premiered, again directed by Ryan Little and produced by fellow-alumnus Adam Abel. The pair worked to make the war film appropriate for a broader audience while still accurately depicting the nature of war.

Just a year later Little aided in the production of a new BYUtv series, Granite Flats, written by BYU alum James Shores. The story is set in Colorado in 1962 and follows three 'amateur sleuths' and a police chief as they try to find explanations for strange happenings in their little town of Granite Flats.
