Meet the Filmmaker

What is their why?

Richard Ulrich is a Filipino, St. Louis-born filmmaker, director, producer, actor, and artist.

“My name is Richard; I am a storyteller. Sometimes I use acrylic and canvas to tell my stories, other times I piece together collages and visions, sometimes I’m in front of the camera, and other times I’m behind it, but regardless of the medium or situation, my art is mine and yours. Mine in all the ways that creating art and telling my story relieves me of any weight by transforming it into something we can share. Yours in all the ways that art is meant to be shared and felt together.”
