Riley, “The Hammer” with Adam Carolla and television shows such as “Medium” for NBC.
Rian would attend UCLA for training in Unit Production Management under the careful instruction of industry veteran Michael Gallant. Rian’s first working task was to discover ways to save the production budget of the film “The Perfect Game”. Impressed with Rian’s forward thinking and unique approach to the industry, Michael encouraged Rian to form his own production company and push his own projects as opposed to working for someone else.
Along with a group of industry players, Rian formed 1450 Entertainment. A main-stream production company to handle feature films, network television shows and video games. Wanting to maintain creative control in house, Rian also formed Saw-Dog Studios, a music recording and publishing house, as well as Abditive Films, to handle short films and on-line narratives.
To date, collectively, 1450 has over 70 projects on its slate ranging from short films and independent features, to network television pilots and multi-million dollar studio franchises. High profile films such as “Her Vietnam” and the “The Hitman Chronicles” are in development and under consideration while television pilots such as “Nothing in Common” and “The Nam” are in talks with houses at NBC, Universal and Warner Brothers as well as Play Tone.
