PAUL F. RYAN (Writer/Director/Editor)

Paul began his career under the tutelage of Academy Award winning film editor Neil Travis, working as an apprentice on such films as BOPHA! and CLEAR AND PRESENT DANGER until he was accepted into the prestigious graduate film program at the University of Southern California. There he quickly excelled winning the Harold Lloyd Scholarship and later directing THE LIST, a short film which brought him numerous honors (most notably the 1999 College Emmy Award for Best Drama). HOME ROOM is his remarkable feature film debut.
