Director's Biography

Ryan Stevens Harris is an award winning filmmaker, editor and exhibited artist. He grew up in North Carolina and Ohio, never far from the red glow of his mother’s darkroom, sketching on his drawing board and inventing stories. Later, he followed his passion by studying filmmaking both in London and at the University of Southern California School of Cinematic Arts in Los Angeles. From there he co-founded Fire Trial Films, a boutique production company focused on 35mm film production. In 2016, Harris directed “Whisper”, an animated music video for the indie band Playing to Vapors which was featured in a showcase at the SXSW Film Festival. Multi talented Harris edited the Lionsgate sci-fi blockbuster “Moonfall” (2022), as well as Netflix releases “2307: Winter’s Dream” (2016), “Darc” (2018) and “The Hard Way” (2019). He also cut “Watchtower” (2019), which was nominated for two Emmy’s and premiered at Festival de Cannes. Plus Ryan was an Additional Editor and Sound Designer on the war epic “Midway” (2019), which was #1 at the box office upon its release. Most recently, Harris wrote and directed “Moon Garden”, a lush dark fantasy shot on 35mm film stock with vintage lenses. This “Sweetest Vacation” volunteer director currently resides in Burbank, California.
