Ryan Kramer is a writer/director, looking to engrave his voice into the wave of new age filmmaking. He first developed a deep appreciation for film after watching "A Bronx Tale" as a child. He graduated from Hunter College in 2012 with a Bachelor's in Film. It was there that he met CongestedCat founder Christina Raia in a screenwriting class and joined the team in 2011 after being Assistant Director for her film "Come Here Often?". He has written and directed two short films, "The Contained" and "FedUP" and has worked as crew on multiple CongestedCat projects. Although he would often picture himself as the characters he would write, it was only after reading Christina's feature-length horror script, "Summit," that he felt passionate enough about a character to attempt portraying it on the big screen. Because of this, despite his main aspiration for being behind the camera, he has gone on to act in quite a few of our projects. He co-wrote and co-starred in "House Near the End of the Street" and made his feature film debut as Will in Summit. He also makes appearances in "Juice It" and "Night In." 

Currently, he is in pre-production for his third short film as writer & director, "Arm Bar," and his latest short screenplay "Magic Mountain," made the quarter finals of the 2015 ScreenCraft Screenplay Contest. He hopes to direct it in 2017.
