Ryan McDuffie (Film Skillet Producer) - Los Angeles CA USA
Many young filmmakers will tell you Star Wars was a big influence on how they became enamored with the magic of the movies. Ryan is no different, but for better or worse he was also heavily influenced by spending countless weekends as a child absorbing films like Gremlins, Alien, Evil Dead 2, Beetlejuice, and Pee Wee's Big Adventure (which remains his favorite film to this day).
After making silly movies with friends throughout middle school and high school using the family video camera, he advanced to making silly movies with friends at UC Santa Cruz, one of which had its theatrical premiere at the Carnival of Darkness film festival in Los Angeles.
Diploma in hand, Ryan moved to Hollywood and quickly lucked into a totally awesome post P.A. job on a big Hollywood film, and has since then worked his way up the post production ladder in reality television. Now, with Finite Films, he's excited to pursue his true passion of directing.
