Ryan Wilson

MFA 2012, Film

Ryan Wilson grew up in Auburn, ME, where he became interested in
making films when he was 13 years old. He graduated with an AAS in
Video Technology at Southern Maine Technical College in 2003 and a BA
in Media Writing at the University of Southern Maine in 2007.

During this time, he has written several satirical scripts for both play
festivals and short film. As a filmmaker, he is attracted to the irrelevance
of gender roles and stereotypes, and frequently finds himself writing feminist
pieces that allow greater action from women and less domination from
men. He is very interested in acting and has been performing in both
school and local plays, as well as short film, for more than half his life. He
wishes to continue writing and producing film for as far as it will
take him.
