Ryan Thielen is an emmy-winning producer/director based out of Minneapolis, Minnesota. Ryan hit the ground running in the film industry by starting Triglass Productions while still in college. Based out of Minneapolis, Minnesota, Triglass Productions has produced NFL content, including web media, Cheerleader Stadium Videos, and a Minnesota Black History Month TV show [featured on FOX Sports].

Not one to stand still, Ryan pioneered two original types of content in the sports industry: the cinematic themed NFL Pro Bowl videos known as the "Vikings Prime" series, and the animated photography series known as "Prime Stats." The Pro Bowl videos were the first ever to take an innovative cinematic approach while promoting star NFL players for their Pro Bowl bid. Prime Stats blends the best of all three realms: photography, stats, and videography. The brand is currently being used in NFL, NBA, and NCAA social media outlets.

Ryan has directed and edited three Short Films, three Music Videos, and is a producer on the upcoming sequel short film - R'ha. Ryan's clients look to him for his unique storytelling ability and track record of exceptional content. 

Ryan utilizes his passion for storytelling to continue to push and improve himself in all areas of filmmaking. Beginning as an editor, he quickly branched off into producing, directing, writing, cinematography, and media consulting for the Minnesota Vikings. His work with the Vikings led to an Emmy Nomination [Xavier Rhodes Pro Bowl Promo]. Ryan has also won two Hermes Creative Awards for his television commercials [BiPro USA, Ride for Life], and has been selected to several film festivals for various videos and films.
