Film Riot is a YouTube channel with, at the time of this recording, 1.3 MILLION subscribers. It's an incredible resource that teaches you the art and science of film-making in a very entertaining way, and the mastermind behind it is Ryan Connolly. Ryan's a filmmaker, and I really think that word fits him well because after talking with him it's clear that he is obsessed with filmmaking and has been pretty much his whole life.
In this interview we talk about the brilliant model behind Film Riot, that lets Ryan and his crew fund and produce short films with an insane amount of production value… all without a studio backing them.
