My name is Ryan Blitzer and I’m currently a student at Southern Methodist University majoring as a B.F.A in Film & Media Arts with possible minors in advertising and law. From a young age, I’ve been interested in filmmaking – editing random bits of footage together, and uploading them to YouTube and creating silly home movies with my friends.
My interests lie in directing films, and luckily, I managed to direct 5 short films, mostly in the span of my senior year in high school (can be found here). One of my short films (My Deer) is currently in the running for 1st or 2nd place in a Florida state media/film competition! In addition to directing and making short films, I’ve also made PR videos pro-bono for non-profit organizations and demo reels for actors and athletes.
I’m a filmmaker at heart and love great comedies (Chaplin), dramas (Howard & Spielberg), animations (Pixar/Disney) and documentaries, but I also love good suspense (Hitchcock) and action movies! I would love to become a director in Hollywood one day – making movies that inspire people to create change in their personal lives and in their communities.
