Chris Landreth’s “Ryan” brilliantly combines many styles and movements into one animated documentary short. The 3-D animation focuses on the life of renowned Canadian animator Ryan Larkin, who made some landmark short but now panhandles for change. Landreth gives his characters, including himself, realistic 3-D models, but stylizes them with visualizations of life’s scars. Half of Larkin’s face, for example, is missing. He also pays homage to many of Larkin’s works, and shows that his name could go into animation history as well.
