Ruan du Plessis
Born in South Africa where lions, zebras, and elephants roam the land, Ruan du Plessis has an eye for the lens.
Ruan moved to the United States when he was fourteen and settled in Indiana for his high school years. At Indiana School for the Deaf, he found his passion for filmmaking when the school gave him an opportunity to make a motion picture. His passion didn’t stop there. Ruan continued to enrich his filmmaking talents working with ASL Films and Rustic Lantern Films. Over those years working with the two film companies, he produced a total of nine films! Ruan then landed a job at Communication Service for the Deaf and refined his skills with a marketing perspective before becoming one of the co-founders of Bus Door Films.
