About Ryan

Ryan Lynch grew up on the outskirts of Atlanta, GA on a farm, where she'd spend the hot summer days riding her horse to the local video store to rent the latest new release. While traveling in the Middle East, India and Southeast Asia and filming every minute, she inadvertently created what became her first documentary. Enamored by telling stories through moving images, she decided to become a filmmaker. Ryan has spent the last six years at Pixar Animation Studios in the story department working on films such as Ratatouille and the upcoming 2012 release, Brave. Also while at Pixar, she's worked on numerous short live-action films in various roles from director to writer to production designer through Pixar’s live-action film coop. Her latest film she wrote and directed, Real Men Go Hunting went on to screen at numerous film festivals all over the world including Cannes Short Film Corner and Honolulu IFF where it won an Aloha Accolade Award. She is in production on another short she's directing called, The Farms, through her production company she started in 2009 called MissMottMedia, LLC. She received a B.F.A. in visual arts from University of Colorado and an M.F.A. in film directing from Academy of Art University in San Francisco.
