NEW YORK PREMIERE
Amateur
Directed by Ryan Koo



AMATEUR is the lead-in short film for Koo’s forthcoming narrative feature MANCHILD, which follows a 13 year-old athlete through the competitive world of youth basketball. Koo’s script for MANCHILD was awarded a Tribeca All Access grant by the Tribeca Film Institute; it was selected for IFP’s Emerging Narrative program; and it was selected for IFP and the Film Society of Lincoln Center’s first inaugural Emerging Visions program.


Writer/Director, Ryan Koo
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. Filmmaker Magazine heralded the series as "ingenious low-budget independent filmmaking that just happens to be viewable only on the Web," and named him and co-creator Zack Lieberman two of their 25 New Faces of Independent Film.

Koo is also the founder of the website nofilmschool, which currently averages over two million views a month and won Total Film’s Best Creative Blog award. He is also a member of the Brooklyn Filmmakers Collective.
