Ryan McDonald is a Jack-of-All-Trades, having been trained and working as a director, writer, videographer, photographer, editor and (on rare occasions) a fight choreographer.

He is the owner of Chicknskratch Productions, a multimedia production company that provides artists and small businesses with quality promotional materials. Because of this mentality, Ryan is thrilled to be working with The Incubator, further extending the services available to small-scale enterprises.

Ryan has worked on over 150 productions including theatrical performances, feature films, television shows, advertisements, trailers, and shorts. Because of his lengthy job description, Ryan likes to call himself a “Storyteller” and “Professional Human Being” who believes no idea is too small, and no problem is too large.

Fun Facts:

  • Ryan is a 5-time Jean Murray/Moray Sinclair Scholarship winner at the Manitoba Theatre Centre.
  • He founded and ran a “Trade-Only” storefront appropriately titled “The Trading Post” for eight years with the Annual Winnipeg Folk Festival.
