Tom Jolliffe chats with independent filmmaker Shane Ryan....

California born indie filmmaker Shane Ryan has been directing films for 10 years now. Raised on a steady diet of Jean-Claude Van Damme films and an innate love of all types of cinema, Ryan has gained some success and no small amount of notoriety in his career as a film maker. His first major breakthrough was the exploitation flick, Amateur Pornstar Killer. This would spawn two sequels. He’s courted controversy from films like this, but also dealing with issues like child murder as well as pedophilia in some films. His recent film, My Name Is ‘A’ by Anonymous is based on the real life murder of Elizabeth Olten (a famous case in America in 2009) focusing on the convicted killer, 15 year old Alyssa Bustamente. The film, finished in 2011, still awaits distribution. Shane took the time to answer a few questions about his career thus far. »
