Ryan and Jeff met in college at Ball State University and immediately shared a love of horror films. They began work on The Pumpkin Man, and soon realized they had a knack for it. After projects like The Pumpkin Man 2: Ryan's Nightmare, and Alone, Ryan and Jeff wanted to take things to the next level. Enter The Pumpkin Man 3. The film ended up being a collaboration of over 40 people and their greatest achievement to date. Among all of this, the two founded Nautical Films, as an outlet to release their creative works. With multiple award nominations under their belt, Ryan and Jeff hope to continue to entertain audiences for years to come.
