MY STORY

“Actors are smart and if there’s a sensibility and an aesthetic that a director’s going for, if they’re aware of that too, there are things you can do to get there together.”

 

Well known as an “actor’s director”, Don McCutcheon’s talent at elevating performance is rooted in the theatre, while directing over 200 hours of television grants him the experience to creatively navigate the challenges of production. A team player, he’s renowned for creating an atmosphere on set in which cast and crew members feel inspired to excel.

Having shot extensively throughout Canada, the U.S. and Europe, his considerable body of work encompasses credits across multiple genres, including:  Beauty and the Beast, Corner Gas, The Pinkertons, The Good Witch, The Listener and the world-wide hit Murdoch Mysteries.

Acknowledged by his peers, for his distinct voice with nominations from the DGC Awards and the Canadian Comedy Awards, Don has also been awarded the distinguished Don Haldane Award from the Directors Guild of Canada.
