I’m Ryan Steven Green. I make documentaries. I was 13 when first I put a camera to my eye, and the list of films I’ve amassed since then betrays how unfashionably happy my pre-internet, suburban childhood was—coffee, snails, verbal insults, the so-called “blue flame” phenomenon, modern homesteaders, moustaches, vintage Volkswagens, dwarf basketball. I was born in Glendale, came up in Altadena, graduated from USC (Cinema-Television, emphasis on non-fiction filmmaking)—I’m one of those natives you never seem to meet. I was an invited guest at the Vatican for Pope Benedict XVI’s first mass. I got a spanking from Shaquille O’Neal. I “did a J” with Jeff Dowd—the actual Dude—at sunset on a rooftop in Santa Monica. We took a selfie. (This is where I’m supposed to brag about all my awards, client list, press. If you’re into that sort of thing, click here). Do you want to make a documentary or fund mine? Need a video for your business? Let’s chat.
