Robert Meyer Burnett, Director
For the past 26 years, filmmaker Robert Meyer Burnett found himself traveling the globe participating in just about every aspect of the film industry. Beginning as a Production Assistant on horror films such as LEATHERFACE: THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE III and Sam Raimi’s ARMY OF DARKNESS, he eventually found himself as a Management Trainee under Warner Brothers Senior Vice President of Production Bill Young, allowing him to observe feature film production from the very highest levels of major Studio.
From there, he spent a number of years as a professional story analyst, reading thousands of scripts for the likes Silver Pictures, CAA, William Morris and The Image Organization before choosing to concentrating on actually creating content.
Beginning with Full Moon’s 1993 release ARCADE, he’s edited over ten feature films, most recently 2016’s upcoming PARADOX, written and directed by Mike Hurst and starring Zoe Bell.
He made his feature directorial debut with the 1999 award-winning cult favorite FREE ENTERPRISE, starring Emmy winners William Shatner and Eric McCormack, which he also edited and co-wrote
Beginning in 2000, he began editing, writing, producing and directing content for Special Edition DVDs and Blu-
Rays, including FANTASIA, SNOW WHITE, TRON, THE FELLOWSHIP OF THE RING, THE TWO TOWERS and THE LION, THE WITCH and THE WARDROBE. This allowed him to spend extended periods of time overseas, embedded with the productions. In 2002, he founded his own production company, Ludovico Technique, teaming up with Director Bryan Singer to create award-winning documentaries for THE USUAL SUSPECTS, X-MEN, X2 and SUPERMAN RETURNS.
In 2003, he developed and Co-Produced AGENT CODY BANK and its sequel, AGENT CODY BANKS: DESTINATION LONDON for MGM.
In 2008, Ludovico Technique developed and produced its first feature film, THE HILLS RUN RED, for Silver Picture and Warner Premiere, with Burnett producing.
He went on to edit and direct five episodes of the HBO/Cinemax series FEMME FATALES and most recently produced all the Special Features for the multiple award winning HD restoration of STAR TREK: THE NEXT GENERATION and four seasons of STAR TREK: ENTERPRISE.
After editing the award-winning fan favorite PRELUDE TO AXANAR, he’s taken the directorial reigns of the AXANAR feature film, the fulfillment of his life-long dream to direct a STAR TREK featurefilm.
