Biography by Jason Buchanan

If you watch television, you've no doubt seen his work, but even if you don't recognize the name David Winning, the mention of such titles as Friday the 13th: The Series, Andromeda, and Dinotopia are sure to fire a synapse or two. While still only 22, the Calgary, Alberta, native made his debut feature, Storm, for a mere 50,000 dollars. His credits had been sporadic to that point, but picked up considerably during the '90s. Though he worked almost exclusively in television, success with episodes of such shows as Sweet Valley High and Goosebumps was tempered with occasional feature endeavors like Killer Image (1992), Profile for Murder (1997), and Exception to the Rule (1997). That same year, Winning also made Turbo: A Power Rangers Movie, based on ABC's Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers. Subsequent small-screen efforts such as Earth: Final Conflict, Andromeda, and the miniseries Merlin found the director leaning closer to sci-fi fantasy material.
