Director, Writer

Ryan Allsop has been a filmmaker all his life and loves to tell a wide variety of stories from drama’s to comedies. He grew up in a Mormon household in central Wisconsin. He’s about as midwestern as you can get. Telling stories is something he’s done all his life and something that he wants to keep doing for the rest of his life. Mount Liptak is now his 3rd short film with the hopes of shooting a feature length film soon. He’s an outgoing, goofy, hard-working, focused, rowdy guy who loves to tell the best possible story through film.
