Producer Declan Ryan is starting 2018 strong with a February release of a documentary called 42 GRAMS on Netflix, and producing 3 more feature films; GHOST EMPIRE, SNOWFLAKE and CAJUN CHRISTMAS.
His most recent work involves bringing two feature films, PARANORMAL ABDUCTION and OPEN TABLES to worldwide digital audiences in 2017.
Declan's career began in the early 2000’s in his hometown of Chicago. He field produced episodic documentaries for WTTW, the Travel Channel, and FOX, and shot two successful auto racing docs, FOUR BANGERS and TRAILER RACER.
After witnessing the wake of Katrina’s destruction, Ryan gathered up his gear, enlisted investors, and produced his documentary HELLP in 2006. Ryan’s directorial debut came that same year with ULBERT, an award-winning documentary on bipolar disorder. It later became a standard for education in institutions across the globe. From 2008 until 2010 Declan produced and shot John Richie’s SHELL SHOCKED, a hit documentary about New Orleans’ youth and gun violence.
Declan's favorite Harvey characters are Dick Tracy and Richie Rich. Richie Rich was his most favorite read of all comic books, as he was fascinated with the concept of an endless supply of money.
