FULL TIME Short Film

January 11, 2024 – New York-based director, writer, and producer Jon Ryan has released his newest short film, Full TimeFull Time tells the story of the free-spirited Michael Tucker (Andrew Lutheran), a recent college graduate, as he accepts a job offer from a mysterious businessman (Iddo Goldberg). Entertaining, witty, and equally thought-provoking, Full Time invites viewers to look inwards at what keeps us in boxes, the rules people abide by and the cost you pay for a sense of security that is, sometimes, an illusion at best. Full Time is written, co-produced, and directed by Jon Ryan and co-produced by Ellen Burke.

Full Time is available to watch now exclusively via Omeleto at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PAK1VcjHD3A

Full Time has already garnered over 50k views in its first week of posting and was also shown at the Oscar-qualifying film festival HollyShorts in 2023.

“The monotony of adulthood can feel claustrophobic,” shares Jon Ryan on the new film. “You get sucked into it, you get stuck there, and once you’re able to resurface you can finally see that your life has passed you by without having realized that. I think this trap is invisible, so I wanted to shed some light on it in a film.”
