RYAN HOWARD FINISHES HIS FIRST MAJOR DIRECTORIAL EFFORT:
“THE 3RD FLOOR”
Already being compared to Spielberg and Hitchcock, Ryan Howard will surely be an international superstar thanks to this mind-blowing debut film.
October 28, 2010 – Scranton, PA – At the tender age of 30, Ryan Howard has already accomplished a lifetime of achievement. He has worked at Dunder Mifflin’s esteemed corporate offices, he has created stunning photography that’s tugged at the heartstrings of hundreds, and he is the founder and CEO of WUPHF.com. But he’s not stopping there. He is now on to his newest and possibly most inspiring endeavor yet: horror filmmaking.
Growing up, Ryan Howard always had crazy passion for horror films. His fervor for the genre started when he watched a Kubrick marathon in his aunt’s basement – he was merely eight years old at the time, but even then he was advanced enough to appreciate the genius. Throughout his life he’s showed an innate ability to see storytelling on another level (when he watched M. Night Shyamalan’s The Sixth Sense in college, he guessed the ending halfway through). It’s that capacity that allows him to create crazy innovative and gripping material of his own.
He spent one very arduous week (after his day job and before going out to bars) putting his first film together – THE 3RD FLOOR, which many believe will forever change the gruesome face of horror as we know it. Kelly Kapoor, Dunder Mifflin Customer Service Representative and THE 3RD FLOOR lead actress, calls Ryan Howard a “hot genius.”
“Ryan… he just gets it. I love him. I love him so much that I even told him I was pregnant with his baby when I really wasn’t,” says Kapoor. Erin Hannon, who plays the part of The Murdering Corpse, says she’s never felt more significant nor more scared of herself. “I couldn’t sleep for about twelve nights after the shoot. I kept having nightmares where I’d wake up and look in the mirror and I’d be in The Murdering Corpse make-up and I couldn’t take it off. It was super creepy. Ryan was able to really mindfreak me.”
THE 3RD FLOOR is a masterpiece, surely to win such awards as the Director’s Guild Award, the Writer’s Guild Award, the Producer’s Guild Award, and ultimately the People’s Choice Award. Ryan Howard is currently looking for distributors for the film.
