Erin Ryan is an Emmy award-winning director with experience spanning feature-length narrative films to live productions. She also works as a cinematographer and loves the sport of visual artistry. Her favorite aspect of her work is building relationships with artists to challenge too-common misconceptions.
This year, Erin has developed and shot her most personal and most daring piece yet: ALEX, STOP challenges what we consider counts as consent. This story looks to provoke the #metoo movement with consideration for a #hellyes approach to consent with enthusiasm. It is a top 10 finalist in the first-annual She Directed competition led by Kate Bosworth, Chloe Wine Collection, and Women in Film.
Erin’s feature length debut, Love Isn’t Enough, (LIFE WITH SAY, SAQUAN JONES) explores an interracial couple (SHADNER IFRENE, ASHLEY BLOOM) amidst the backdrop of Brooklyn’s Black Lives Matter Movement. It premiered domestically in 2016 and 2017 internationally. RogerEbert.com calls it “A Blue Valentine of sorts for the Black Lives Matter discourse.” This film collected the Best Narrative Feature – Drama nomination from the Long Beach Indie International Festival, televised in various cities across the US, and now has a home on Amazon Prime.
Erin teamed up with OMSANG BOK in Seoul, South Korea to write and direct 해방 (Release), 2019. She is currently taking meetings.http://www.eryanfilm.com
