Robert Meyer Burnett Biography

Robert Meyer Burnett earned his first screen credit as the art department assistant on New Line Cinema's 1990 release "Leatherface: The Texas Chainsaw Massacre III," before moving on to a management trainee position in the Warner Brothers feature production department. There, he participated in the production of such notable films as "Nothing But Trouble," "The Rookie," "The Bonfire of the Vanities" and "Free Willy." From there, he moved on to short stints as a story analyst for Silver Pictures, CAA, William Morris and Pierre David's The Image Organization before settling on a Creative Executive position with director Robin Armstrong's ("Pastime") Open Road Productions. After a year, fed up with story development, the most useless position in Hollywood, Burnett moved back into production, working as assistant makeup-effects coordinator for Tony Gardner's Alterian Studios on "Cast a Deadly Spell," "Sleepwalkers," "Super Mario Brothers," "Army of Darkness" and the "Swamp Thing" television series. From there, he joined Full Moon Entertainment as a staff editor and segment producer, later earning his first feature editorial assignment, the complete recut of Albert Pyun's "Arcade," nominated for Best Independent Direct to Video release of 1993 by the VSDA. Moving off on his own, Burnett directed a number of music videos and shorts, including the award winning short "The Sacred Fire." He also edited segments of the CableACE award-winning "Jody Horowitz Presents" for Showtime. He's edited over 10 feature films, including James Boyd's "The New Gods," which played as part of Slamdance's 1998 "Cannes You Dig it?" program at the Cannes Film Festival. After working as a freelance Star Trek consultant for Viacom Interactive, Burnett went on to edit the multi-media film displays for Landmark Entertainment and Paramount Parks' $80 million themed attraction, "Star Trek: The Experience," which opened in January of 1998 at the Las Vegas Hilton. Additionally during this time, he was Critic-At-Large for Larry Flynt's non-pornographic Sci-Fi Universe Magazine, as well as appearing frequently as an on-air guest commentator on the Sci-Fi Channel series, "SF Vortex," hosted by "Blind Date's" Roger Lodge, formerly the "Politically Incorrect" of the Sci-Fi world. Burnett marked his feature writing/directing debut with Regent Entertainment's multiple-award winning 1999 theatrical release "Free Enterprise," which debuted as a special selection in Spain's renowned Sitges fantasy film festival. Back in the states, the feature took Best Film and the WGA-sponsored Best New Writer honors from the 1998 AFI Film Festival. Burnett then went on to associate-produce Mindfire Entertainment's "The Specials," a Fall 2000 release also from Regent Entertainment. Burnett finished off the year as the editor of "Dean Quixote," the latest feature from "Swingers" producer Victor Simpkins. In 2000, he worked for NBC, writing, editing, producing and directing over 100 promos for the Summer Olympics and the 2000/2001 Primetime Season. Later in the year, Burnett joined DVD content providers Kurtti-Pellerin, producing documentary materials for special edition DVDs. While there, he worked on some of the biggest-selling home video titles in history, including Disney's "The Fantasia Anthology" and "Snow White" and New Line's Extended Editions of both "Fellowship of the Ring" and "The Two Towers," generally considered the two best DVD special editions ever produced. Also at Kurtti-Pellerin, he directed and edited the feature-length "The Making of Tron," for that film's 20th anniversary release. The piece was later nominated as one of 2002's best documentaries by the DVD Exclusive Academy. In 2002, Burnett founded his own production company, Ludovico Technique, named after the brainwashing method depicted in Stanley Kubrick's classic 1971 film, "A Clockwork Orange." The company began by teaming up with MGM and director Bryan Singer to create a special edition DVD of his Oscar-winning "The Usual Suspects," later among the first winners of the Cannes Film Festival's permanent DVD collection. 2003 marked his return to filmmaking, developing the screenplay for MGM's "Agent Cody Banks" with screenwriters Ashley Miller and Zack Stentz. He went on to Co-Produce the feature. Also in 2003, Ludovico Technique produced the 20th anniversary "Valley Girl" DVD for MGM, awarded Roger Ebert's coveted "pick of the week" during the first days of August. Burnett then re-teamed with Bryan Singer to create special editions for "X-MEN 1.5" and "X2" for Fox Home Video. "X2" went on to be nominated as Best DVD Special Edition of the Year by the DVD Exclusives Academy. March 2004 sees the release of "Agent Cody Banks 2: Destination London," which he also serves as Co-Producer. Ludovico Technique is also hard at work creating the DVD Special Edition for Disney's "The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe," a hundred-million dollar film lensing in London, New Zealand and Prague, currently slated for release in Christmas, 2005. Most recently, Burnett finished the screen adaptation of Mark Lindquist's Seattle-set novel, "Never Mind Nirvana," which he hopes to direct sometime in the near future.
