Ellery Bryan

Ellery Bryan is a filmmaker, night owl, and educator based in Baltimore, MD, on unceded Piscataway land. For 6 months they’ve been adjusting to being alive in a world where their former longterm partner is no longer alive. They’re also trying to incorporate a rattail and figure out why they take photographs.

Ellery’s childhood home was a big haunted farm in a grey and brown house their dad built. Their most intense dreams still happen there even though they haven’t been back in 15 years.
The weather they most enjoy is 68 degrees and a chilly breeze, preferably at night.
Their favorite tool is a wooden French hair pin: it “makes getting older feel cool and hot.”
