Based out of Phoenix, Arizona,  Ryan Kjolberg is a writer, director, producer whose passion for storytelling has prompted him to explore various forms of esthetic, story design, and tone in the pursuit of his own cinematic style.

 Inspired by filmmakers like Stanley Kubrick, David Fincher, and Denis Villenueve,  Ryan's films harken to a dark and brooding nature that surrounds his characters (and the worlds they inhabit) in an air of suspense and mystery. Although his experiences to date have mainly been with directing short films, Ryan hopes to make the jump into feature work where he can better display his talents. 

Outside of film, Ryan's interests extend to drawing, music, travel, fine dinning, and breathing.
