Ryan N. Olsen is no stranger to video & film. Having been interested in film from an early age, he watched everything his parents would allow. His love for film began with Tim Burton, George Lucas, and Toho Ltd. Studios. He made claymations & short films with his friends throughout elementary & middle school. Once he graduated from Kearney High School in 2003, he enrolled in the Film Studies program at the University of Nebraska at Lincoln (UNL). He graduated from UNL in 2008 with his Bachelor’s and worked on film sets and commercials for a few years before starting his film production company, POW! Productions in 2011. After shooting a public service announcement for the state of Nebraska, Ryan earned a spot as the Director of Video Productions for the ad agency, Local Hero Design. After receiving multiple positive reviews with his most recent commercial for The Hot Mess bar in Lincoln, Nebraska, he has seen an influx in business. “Say Goodbye, Grace: A Detective Story,” is his debut film as a filmmaker.
Nebraska Independent Film Projects is a 501(c)3 nonprofit: Helping filmmakers connect and create film and new media arts since 1991.
