Bryce has lived in many places but feels at home in Kentucky; where the streams, cliffs, and hills quickly became the backdrops of his life and, consequently, his films. Inspired by his faith in Christ, he struggles to find beauty and truth in the mundane to guard against the despair that is the end of both art and life.
