I’m Ryan Rivard - a filmmaker from the Live Free or Die State.
I’m the Producer at Reel Works, a youth media non-profit in Brooklyn. I run our production company staffed by our program's graduates and professional freelancers. With Reel Works, I’ve produced commercials and how-to-play videos for Hasbro, a documentary on conservation in the National Parks for the Student Conservation Association, and a feature-length narrative film, 72 Hours: A Brooklyn Love Story?, that played at the LA Film Festival, Urbanworld, and New Orleans Film Festival.
I’m currently writing a new short film that tells the story of a fitting model, set to go into production this winter.
When I’m not working on film projects, I release music as Nylon Jacket.
I live with Brian and Bryan in Queens.
