DIRECTOR’S BIO: Ryan Stevens Harris is an award-winning filmmaker, editor and exhibited artist. He grew up in North Carolina and Ohio, never far from the red glow of his mother’s dark room, sketching on his drawing board and inventing stories. Later, he followed his passions by pursuing filmmaking, both in London and at the USC School of Cinematic Arts in Los Angeles. From there he co-founded Fire Trial Films, a boutique production company focused on 35mm production. In 2016, Harris directed “Whisper”, an animated music video for the indie band Playing to Vapors featured in a showcase at the SXSW Film Festival.
Multi-talented, Harris edited the Lionsgate sci-fi blockbuster, “Moonfall” (2022), as well as Netflix releases “2307: Winters’ Dream” (2016), “Darc” (2018), and “The Hard Way” (2019). He also cut “Watchtower” (2019), which was nominated for two Emmys and premiered at the Cannes Film Festival, and was an Additional Editor and Sound Designer on the war-epic “Midway” (2019), which was #1 at the Box Office upon its release. Most recently, Harris wrote and directed “Moon Garden”, a lush dark fantasy odyssey shot on expired 35mm film stock with vintage lenses. Harris currently resides in Los Angeles.
