Dylan is an aspiring filmmaker from the Dallas/Fort Worth area. Dylan was 10 years old when he began with stop motion Lego movies created on his phone and hasn’t looked back. He first knew he wanted to be a Film Director when he was 12 years old after watching J.J. Abram’s 2011 sci-fi movie, “Super 8”. From that point on, Dylan started making home movies with the small Sony camcorder his mother gave him, but his dream would not gain traction until a few years later.
Dylan takes inspiration from some of his favorite directors, namely Quentin Tarantino, Christopher Nolan, and Ridley Scott. His sophomore year of high school, Dylan enrolled in Audio/Video Production at the HEBISD Career and Technical Center. During his first semester, his teacher promoted him to the advanced senior level class after Dylan turned in a horror short film titled “Play Me”. For the rest of his sophomore and Junior year, Dylan built upon his skills and entered the SXSW film contest in 2015 with his short film “Reprieve”. Although his first entry was not chosen, his experiences prepared him for future contests and projects. In 2016 Dylan once again entered SXSW with the submission of his film, “The Silent Paracosm”. Dylan’s second SXSW entry, “The Silent Paracosm”, was accepted as an official selection into the Texas High School shorts category.
Dylan is focused on gaining experience and pursuing opportunities to intern in the film industry
