Byron A. Martin Article



Meet Toronto’s Film Producer, Byron A. Martin

 Excerpt from Streets N Beats article (January 11, 2016)

"What does X-Men, The Carbon Rush, and The Boondock Saints all have in common? The answer is Byron Martin, film producer extraordinaire whose projects also include The Chronicles of Riddick, Death Race (with Jason Statham), Resident Evil: Afterlife, and even two American Pie movies.

I met this mult-italented Canadian while in university when I was auditing a film class. We have similar spelling of last names, and I recall the professor kept mispronouncing my last name as Byron’s!

But his cool demeanor has always impressed me and I am feeling very fortunate to speak with him again as he is coming out of a year-long high.  His 30 episode series, BACKSTAGE, will be airing  on Family Channel and Disney this year.  And his incredible upcoming documentary, Tomorrow’s Power,  just finished filming in Germany.  The crew will be departing for Gaza for 3 more weeks of filming, followed by another shoot in Colombia, which will then complete the footage of this new feature.  Can we say, he is busy?"
