Ryan Koo's latest short film AMATEUR can be viewed free online at manchildfilm.com.
AMATEUR is the prequel to the forthcoming feature MANCHILD, which has been selected for the Sundance Screenwriters Lab, the A3 Foundation Sundance Fellowship, a Tribeca Film Institute All Access Grant, IFP Emerging Narrative and No Borders programs, and the Film Society of Lincoln Center Emerging Visions program.
Named one of Filmmaker Magazine’s 25 New Faces of Independent Film, Koo previously co-wrote, directed, shot, and edited the “urban western” web series The West Side, which won the Webby Award for Best Drama Series.
Koo is also the founder of the filmmaking website No Film School, which won Total Film’s Best Creative Blog award and helped him raise $125,000 on Kickstarter to fund MANCHILD’s forthcoming production.
MANCHILD is currently raising additional financing and attaching cast; the film is scheduled to shoot late summer 2014.
