[edit] Information

Ryan brings to life the story of Canadian animator Ryan Larkin, who produced some of the most influential animated films of the early 1970s. In this Oscar winning film, celebrated director Chris Landreth uses a hand-animated, three dimensional technique he calls "psychological realism" to tell Ryan's story. In recent years Ryan was plagued by a downward spiral of drug abuse, alcoholism and homelessness, but recently found himself back in the limelight when a computer-animated documentary on his life, Ryan by fellow Canadian animator Chris Landreth, won the Academy Award for Animated Short Film and screened to acclaim at film festivals around the world. Alter Egos (2004), directed by Laurence Green, is a documentary about the making of Ryan that includes interviews with both Larkin and Chris Landreth as well as with various people who knew Ryan at the peak of his own success., since this film was made Larkin died peacefully in his sleep at the age of 63, on Wednesday 27th Feb 2007, at his manager Laurie Gordon's home St. Hyacinthe, Que., following a long-term battle with cancer. "Ryan was an inspiration to everyone who knew him and to generations of creative spirits in Canada and around the world," Gordon said. "He was charismatic even in the face of his illness."
