From frat-boy channeling puppet monkey’s with homicidal tendencies to Dungeons and Dragons geeks with a lovingly strange relationship, Ryan writes and directs “what he knows”. Ryan’s films have screened all over the world in such premier film festivals as Toronto, Bermuda, Minneapolis/St. Paul and, of course, South Dakota Film Festival. His web series Fear of Girls has become an internet sensation; with views in the millions, this three-episode series was adopted into an award winning RPG adventure, translated into Russian, and even optioned by ABC Family. Currently Ryan works as a producer in Minneapolis. His film, Len’s Helper, will be shown during Film Session 4, which begins on Saturday, September 29 at 1:00 p.m.
