Dylan is from small town Welland, Ontario. In 2014 he moved to Toronto to pursue his career as an Actor. Working on various projects such as TV shows, Feature Films, Commercials, and Print ads Dylan soaked up as much behind the scenes work as he could to help him develop his own projects. He wrote the comedic YouTube series ‘Out to Lunch’ in 2016 which gained quite a bit of traction in Ontario, Canada. After choosing his initial cast and filming episode one for ‘Out to Lunch’ there was an awful audio issue and the project had to be scrapped. It was over a year before Dylan settled on a new cast, and crew. Once he did, the project came to life and the rest was history! Although that was Dylan’s directing debut he received strong praise from both the actors on set as well as the established crew he brought on. He used his connections and the lessons learned from ‘Out to Lunch’ to create his most recent drama/thriller ‘Cruel World’. All of the projects Dylan has created have been released and self funded under his own production company ‘behindDAmask Productions’. With all of the projects thus far being written, produced, directed and starred in by Dylan himself. He currently has been assisting up and coming creators in the industry with advice on how to create your own projects on a limited budget. He aims to have an animated comedy series released by 2022.
“If you can make one stranger laugh/cry/feel from something you’ve created. Then all of the hard work and dedication was worth it. Anything more is simply a bonus” -Dylan Mask
Ralph was born in Poznan, Poland. At the age of 10 he immigrated to Italy and then moved to Unites States two years later.
Ralph’s entrance into filmmaking was rather unorthodox. About around 2010, as a musician, he was in need of a musical video. Although several people with a film background helped him get the project started, much of the work fell upon his shoulders. In order to complete the project, Ralph was forced to learn and perform many of the filmmaking tasks. Since that initial project, he has fallen in love with the entire process of filmmaking. He has now produced a number of music videos along with 3 short films up to date. In addition, he started his own film/ video production company and produces commercial work. Ralph is a self-taught filmmaker, and such background gives him a perspective and creative approach free of traditional filmmaking paradigms.
Ralph is inspired by directors like David Fincher, Danny Boyle, Darren Aronofsky and Denis Villeneuve. As mentioned, Ralph did not study film at a traditional film school. Instead, he has a degree in psychology. Being a student of psychology, Ralph is interested in exploring deeper, and potentially darker, layers of his characters. He is always seeking a thorough understanding of what motivates and moves his character to behave.
In addition to directing his own films, Ralph has worked as a DOP and an editor for other filmmakers. He strongly believes in building a community of filmmakers and related artists. He looks forward to projects that challenge him and push him to grow as a filmmaker.
Two men use digital technology to record virtual experiences. They discover that their recordings are potentially hacked and are then hunted by a woman-like artifact. Soon lines of reality and recorded experiences are blurred and in the end only one character lives.
