 Ryan Minaker 

Executive Producer/ Creator/Director/Writer/Actor/Editor

Ryan Minaker is the creative mind behind CLOUD VAN.

After graduating from Saint Vincent College (Latrobe, PA, USA) in 2012 with a BA in Communications and Media Broadcasting, he decided to hang up his football pads to pursue a career in the Film Industry.

With an eye for comedy and a creative passion for acting, he moved to Vancouver with the intent on becoming a film producer and actor.

With his foot in the door directing festival short "Grilled Chicken" (Official Select Shockfest 2021) and festival winner

"Things Get Better" (WCIFF - Best Comedy 2022) along side filming the comedic web-series "CLOUD VAN" and creatively bizarre horror "Please Look Away" (both available online at Minaker Unleashed Productions), nothing seems to be stopping him as he takes the industry by storm.

Kofi  Effah

Executive Producer/Actor

A natural story-teller, Kofi Effah is a producer who seemed destined to make the transition into the world of film. From grades nine through twelve, he enrolled in his secondary school's theatre and drama program and fell in love with the art. After studying Sociology and English at the University of Windsor, Kofi decided to renew his passion for film by moving from Toronto to Vancouver in 2012. Since then, he has immersed himself within BC's thriving film industry, and has worked on such television shows as 'The Flash,' 'Prison Break: Sequel,' and 'The Man in the High Castle' as a lighting technician. In his free time, Kofi enjoys producing his own independent projects by day and moonlighting as a hard-boiled detective by night.
