Director Biography - Ryan Town

The year was 1997. Princess Diana was in her last days, but Ryan Town was in his first. A comedian at heart, Ryan would always get in trouble at school for making jokes at inappropriate times. Nobody but Nostrodamus could have predicted that this behavior would translate into a career of comedic filmmaking. Historians have noted that Town's first film, Blind Ambitions, was very successful in many festivals. The film garnered an Audience Choice award at the National Film Festival for Talented Youth and he gained the approval of his mother, Mimi (a tough feat). He is proud to present his newest film, Mr. Hitler, a mockumentary concerning a boy who is coincidentally and unfortunately born with the last name Hitler.

"Wow! I walked out of this film and thought that was the best film I've ever seen!"
-Random Man after seeing Platoon

I hope that people think the same thing about my newest film, Mr. Hitler! Our main goal was to bring laughter to the audience, as laughter is the best medicine. Well, technically Advil is truly the best medicine, but I digress.
