SCOTT RYAN
Creator/Host

Mad. Misfit. Malcontent.

Scott was born and raised in Kansas City. He spent his childhood skateboarding and nearly chose a career in the sport. Instead he forged ahead as an artist and social justice advocate.

Scott's social justice work spans environmental, animal welfare, and civil rights issues. He discovered a missing element in television a couple of years ago: the desires and dreams, the very manifestoes of everyday people were not being represented. His background intertwined with this deficit and inspired the project and show known as 'Manifesto.'

Scott is the subject of a new Microsoft helmed series you can see here. The feature length documentary PROGRAMMED, which is currently in postproduction, chronicles Scott's manifesto to change the future of television. He recently co-founded the eco/animal charity Identify Foundation. Learn more about 'SR' here.


AMBER ARBUCCI
Host

 

Amber Arbucci has led an inspired life. Whether it be her experiences traveling the world, or her vast body of work in front of (or behind) the camera as model and photographer, her zest for life and commitment to her beliefs cannot be denied.

Her photography documents the natural world few people see on a regular basis. Specifically, her work focuses on the many endangered and threatened species in peril across the globe, which she has encountered on her many travels. According to Amber, she doesn't just want the viewer to enjoy her photos, she wants them to 'experience them;' to be drawn into the natural world, the undeniable beauty of this planet we live on. In turn, hopefully we will appreciate it, and our small place within it, in a more thoughtful way.

Amber is a committed advocate of children's rights, animal welfare and poverty related issues. Most recently Amber worked with 'Saving a Child's Heart,' a local charity in Africa. She recently co-founded the eco/animal charity Identify Foundation.

As a Director of Photography he suspended on a stage from the 25th floor of a skyscraper for the Emmy Award winning “American Tower.” Cory also directed the photography for the PBS documentary “Scott Air Force Base” and found himself a passenger on flights to seven different cities, on an Aerovac mission with the USAF.

Needless to say, Cory has true love and passion for documentaries.

Cory has produced several successful short films and music videos. One music video he produced entitled, "Curveball" received a student Emmy Award for editing, cinematography and production. That piece also received a Cine Eagle and a Telly award. His film entitled, “Happy New Year,” currently in postproduction, received generous support from Kodak and Oppenheimer and will be making the festival rounds this year.
