November 6, 2020 – Even as the Coronavirus pandemic has stalled several projects, big and small, and downed the economy, one filmmaker is fighting back with a record number of projects under his belt. Filmmaker and actor, Shane Ryan has completed many projects which are in various stages of production and has signed up for even more.
Ever since the lockdown was implemented in March, Shane Ryan has been producing and/or acting in several films. First, he starred in the Indie thriller, “Choke”. He was also an executive producer for the film. Released in May, the film was followed by “Heartbeat” in which he was co-star/co-executive producer. Ryan also co-produced the lockdown inspired thriller, “Sinful”, and co-starred in and co-produced “Quarantine Girl.” Most of these films were released by Cinema Epoch.
Recently, the sci-fi action flick “Attack of the Unknown” was released and Ryan was associate producer of the film. He is now busy putting final touches on a trilogy that he created and directed. It is called “Ted Bundy Had a Son.” It follows his acclaimed APSKiller films (2007-2009). The APSK trilogy is to have its fourth edition DVD release in just a few months.
In addition to action and adventure, Ryan was also involved in the drama genre, “The Girl Who Wasn’t Missing,” from Wild Eye Releasing. Last month, he also released the first trailer for his LGBT drama, “This Girl, This Boy.” He had been shooting the film simultaneously with the arthouse horror flick, “Red Oedipal”, and the coming of age drama, “God Got Ill.”
“The Owl in Echo Park,” a corrupt cop drama is in its post-production phase. He is also working on a comedy, “American Virgins” and is in the early stages of pre-production for his coming of age dramas “Trash Kids” and “Throwaway Girl.” Ryan has also announced plans to shoot a crime-inspired Japanese film, “Sasebo” and is involved in directing/producing segments for several anthologies.
The release of “Gore Theatre 2” and “Gore Grind” was completed in summer and the videos of “60 Seconds to Die 3” are soon to be released. Ryan also made the #CormanChallenge lockdown short, “Autopilot.” He recently completed his anthology, the 80s homage, “Awesomely Righteous & Radical,” which is waiting for distribution contracts.
Ryan is also co-producing films such as “Time Helmet”, “What an Institution: The Story of Police Academy”, “Wuhan Drive” and many more. The only person who seems to be working on more films than Ryan is his own producing partner, Kelley Daniel, who has more than doubled Ryan’s film count.
