After devouring countless Shakespeare plays, Eugene Ramos earned a degree in British Literature of the 1500s from Northwestern University. He later graduated from Columbia University with an MFA in Film. He wrote, directed, and/or produced a number of shorts, including The Concoction and Dandelion Fall, both of which garnered awards and honors at several film festivals. While at Columbia, he also received a fellowship from Comedy Central. Since film school, he has participated in the NATPE Diversity Fellowship Program, NAMIC’s Writers’ Workshop, and the Hamptons International Film Festival’s Screenwriters’ Lab. His spec scripts for the TV shows “How I Met Your Mother,” “The Twilight Zone,” “Supernatural,” “The Big Bang Theory,” and “Star Trek” have won or placed in several competitions. Most recently, his romantic-comedy screenplay, Newton’s Laws of Emotion, reached the semifinals in the Nicholl Fellowships and the Nantucket Film Festival. It also won the inaugural TFI Sloan Filmmaker Prize at the Tribeca Film Festival and a Gold Prize in the PAGE Awards. Because of his love for the Bard and science fiction, Ramos has earned the nickname The Sci-Fi Shakespeare Guy.
