In his directorial work, Drew Boylan strives to tell intimate, raw stories featuring characters on the fringes of their environments — people who are trapped mentally, physically and emotionally by their circumstances.
He is a recent graduate of the American Film Institute Conservatory in Los Angeles, where he acquired his MFA in Directing. Within the world of digital web content, he has directed, produced and edited numerous pieces for clients such as Fuse, MTV and Sony.
His newest short film STRAY, which he co-wrote and directed, is making the festival rounds, most recently at the Palm Springs International Shortfest, San Luis Obispo International Film Festival and Phoenix Film Festival.
He is currently in post-production on a documentary exploring a young woman’s journey from an underground female fight club to now competing in the U.S. Open of Women’s Freestyle Wrestling. Next up, he is developing a feature-length family crime drama set amid the opioid epidemic in rural North Carolina.
