Ryan also took up directing, and he created the Bread's Crumbs Cinematic Universe. He wrote and directed the first film, Bread's Crumbs, and returned for the second and third main installments, portraying Captain Jumpa in all three films. He also appeared in three of the series' spin-offs - Tea-Eee, Jumpa X and Omega. Ryan also voiced Kai Fellows and Vladimir Dubrovky in Ninjago and its sequel, Rise of the Great Devourer. He played a minor role as the police officer Maxwell in The Legend of the Creepy Guy in the Woods, which would serve as his final film role.
On February 19, 2017, it was announced that his involvement with all films connected to LordStarscream100 has ended. As such, his role as Kai in Ninjago: Age of the Golden Master was recast, while his role in the fourth Bread's Crumbs film was cut.
Ryan showed a large interest in joining the crew after seeing part of Jurassic Shark II, although he was unable to be cast as the movie had already been filmed most of the way through. Ryan had known about the Jurassic Shark project for a long time, but had no interest in joining beforehand. However, he was still able with production by providing sound effects and music, which were used throughout the second half of the movie. Ryan was later cast as Owen Hawkins in Jurassic Shark III: The Revolution, one of the film's leading protagonists.
Filming for Jurassic Shark III began on April 5, 2014. In addition to playing Owen Hawkins, Ryan also filmed as several masked, unnamed corrupt InGen employees, who will appear throughout the film. Ryan later starred in The Search for the Creepy Guy in the Woods, as himself. He made his directorial debut with Bread's Crumbs, which aired on June 19, 2014, and he later appeared in one of its spin-offs, Tea-Eee. Ryan voiced Kai Fellows, Roberts, and the Russian Soldier, also known as Vladimir Dubrovky, in Ninjago, which was released from July to December 2014.
In January 2015, Ryan took the lead role in An Aspiration to Excel, the indirect sequel to The EdTech Enterprise. The film received an honorable mention in the second annual White House Student Film Festival. Ryan filmed Jurassic Shark III: The Revolution throughout 2015, finishing most of his scenes by October 2016. His final scene for the film with Gabe Sagherian and Russell Parkinson was filmed in February 2016. In May 2015, he starred as the title character in the short film Dr. Troubleshoot. In June 2016, he reprised his role as Captain Jumpa in Bread's Crumbs 2: Electric Boogaloo. In August, he appeared Jumpa X - a clone of Captain Jumpa - in the short film Jumpa X. Ryan reprised his roles as Kai Fellows and Vladimir Dubrovky in Ninjago: Rise of the Great Devourer, which aired from July 2015 to March 2016.
In early-2016, Ryan began editing the final battle, also known as the retreating scene, of Jurassic Shark III. In March, he worked with Scott Pincus on their German project, for which they created the short film Isarus. The film was a spin-off of Jurassic Shark III, following three rogue InGen employees and their attempts to sabotage a weapon of mass destruction, the Bombshark. Ryan portrayed Rainer Koffman in the film, who was a main antagonist in Jurassic Shark III. In April, Ryan worked with Austin Brinser and Jacob Doerr on Omega, a Bread's Crumbs spin-off.
Ryan reprised his role as Captain Jumpa in Bread's Crumbs 3: Scrub Slam, the finale of the Bread's Crumbs Cinematic Universe. In August, he played the mercenary Jicker in the short film The Pizza Cometh, and he reprised the role in Pizza Origins, which was filmed and released in September. In October, Ryan worked with Austin Brinser, Gabe Sagherian and Alex Fanelli to make 2016 Election in a Nutshell, a comedic short film persuading people to go out and vote. In December 2016, Ryan finished editing the final battle of Jurassic Shark III. The fifth and final part of the film was released on Christmas.
Ryan played his final role - a minor part, as police officer Maxwell in The Legend of the Creepy Guy in the Woods, having filmed his scenes in December 2016. Ryan also filmed portions of two other projects he created, called Wild Horses and Inauguration Crashers, in January 2017. These films remain incomplete.
On February 19, Ryan's involvement with LordStarscream100's films ceased. He was dropped from the cast of Ninjago: Age of the Golden Master, in which he was set to voice Kai and Vladimir Dubrovky for a third and final time. As a result of this, The Legend of the Creepy Guy in the Woods was made his final film role; he completed his scenes prior to his suspension.
Ryan's role as Kai in Age of the Golden Master was recast on April 3, with Matt Howell taking over the role. Archival footage of Ryan as Jumpa X was briefly featured in The Two Man Trio, though he went uncredited. He is not expected to return for any future works.

- Ryan provided many of the props and sound effects used in LordStarscream100's films, mainly weapons and their respective sound effects. Notable productions include Ninjago, The Search for the Creepy Guy in the Woods, and Jurassic Shark II: The Retribution (although he only provided sound effects for the second half of the movie, as he was not involved with the first half).
- Ryan originally planned on creating several independent projects, that ultimately never came to fruition prior to his suspension (although many were cancelled or simply not developed far before that.) See Scrapped Films for more.
