The Author / Filmmaker
“You deserve to be entertained through story,” says Ryan Souter.

Through his high school years Souter gravitated towards the areas of video production, acting classes, screenwriting, and high school theatre, playing the role of the monster in the high school play Frankenstein in Grade 11.

Having a strong interest in video production, screenwriting and acting, Souter and friends, David Hamm and Warren Pilozow, in Grade 12, made an independent film titled Deadly Resemblance. A passion for movie making was born.

“The creativity bug isn’t something you ever really get rid of when it latches onto you,” says Souter. “It may lay dormant at times, but it’s always there.”
