This site is all about The Next Step, a short documentary that follows Ryan Walker’s move across the country for school and the choices and struggles he faced along the way.


This Project will focus on telling Ryan’s story; sharing his motivations for moving, the struggles he has had to overcome both socially and financially, and the story of adapting his life to new surroundings.


Sometimes you end up going down a path that isn’t right for your future.  By sharing Ryan’s story, we hope to inspire others to pursue what’s right for them, not necessarily the path they chose when they were younger.  There’s always obstacles in the way when you try to change your path in life, this documentary is about stepping over them and moving on to find a direction you can be happy in.
