Directed and created by Shane Ryan, the movie was shot shortly after the events which inspired it (15 year old Alyssa Bustamante was convicted of killing her 9 year old neighbor, Elizabeth Olten). Compared to the likes of David Lynch, Larry Clark, Harmony Korine and John Cassavetes, the film explores teen self-mutilation, bulimia, rape, bullying and depression in its most real and raw form, incorporating partial found-footage snippets and brief actual acts.
My Name is A by anonymous features internationally famous Russian pop star Teona Dolnikova (formerly of the band Slot), Demi Baumann (younger sister of Ken Baumann from The Secret Life of the American Teenager), Domiziano Arcangeli (Scary or Die, Ambushed, Virus X), introducing Katie Marsh as Alyssa, and was co-produced by filmmaker Ryan Nicholson (Live Feed, Hanger, Gutterballs, The Profane Exhibit) and actor Kevin Gage (Michael Mann's Heat, Ridley Scott's G.I. Jane, Blow, Chaos, May, Call of Duty: Ghosts, Knockaround Guys, Con Air).
