About Ian

My name is Ian O'Boyle. I'm an actor/writer/director/producer from New York City and head of Buoyancy Productions, an independent short film and media entertainment company I established in 2019. Growing up in Queens, NY, I learned most about life through the movies my dad would introduce me to at a young age. Pretty sure he showed me Ridley Scott's "Alien" at about 5-years-old (thanks for the trauma dad). My obsession with storytelling truly blossomed with the franchise likes of "Star Wars", "Indiana Jones", "Harry Potter", "Pirates of the Caribbean", and "The Lord of the Rings". Entering my teenage years, being introduced to the arthouse likes of "Taxi Driver", "The Deer Hunter", "Se7en", and "The Godfather" deepened my understanding of the art form and its way of mirroring the truth of our world. After graduating high school and moving to Manhattan to be an actor, I soon discovered my love for writing and creating my own works. I debuted my first independent, low-budget short film, "Funkboy" in late 2021 on Vimeo with the help of some amazing friends and colleagues. Since then, I've been on the hunt to present even more stories through Buoyancy that can combine the entertainment of my childhood, whilst revealing those truths within our reality that I discovered as a teenager, all in an effort to learn and reflect on our universal nature of being human and experiencing life on this planet.
