Ryan is a documentary about Oscar nominee/animator Ryan Larkin, who now panhandles on the streets of Montreal. A preview clip is at the far right of the photo gallery.

Looks like a very interesting film. I wonder what sort of distribution it will get here in Canada. I hope to be able to go see it.

Interesting, in the "Director" section it is explained that it wasn't done using motion capture, but done by hand (keyframing).

The Chris Robinson review/article was particularly excrutiating to read.

Awesome preview. And for those who loathe realplayer, there is an alternative ("Real Alternative") (download link at bottom).

I cant wait to order it when they put it in their online store.

They screened Ryan recently at the Canadian Film Centre's Worldwide Short Film Festival (mouthful). I wanted to see it, but damn the way interesting events always conflict with other life commitments...

As it is being distributed by the NFB/ONF, I'm sure the film will play on TVOntario, will screen on CBC, will be available for viewing at the NFB's Mediatheque, etc. once the film finishes the festival circuit.

I'd be interested in seeing this in Europe.
