Origin Story
Marin, CA
Ryon Lane is the founder of Origin Story, a platform (in development) designed to help filmmakers showcase their talent using short-form content (e.g., pitch trailers and short films), build an audience of fans using that work, and leverage community feedback to fund feature-length films based upon the work.

Ryon is also a filmmaker and an attorney, and has previously served as a Business & Legal Affairs executive in Hollywood. He's currently working on a book featuring a series of 13 interviews with women filmmakers who share their passions and inspirations, personal film career origin stories, their view on the current state of film, how being a woman has played a role in their career, and advice for aspiring filmmakers.

PDXFF15 will feature an interview for the book with Special Guest, Filmmaker Megan Griffiths, Director, THE NIGHT STALKER, LUCKY THEM, EDEN, THE OFF HOURS; and Producer, SWEET CHEEKS, THE CATECHISM CATACLYSM
