Toni Myers was born in Toronto and attended Branksome Hall and the Ontario College of Art before launching her career as an assistant editor on commercials, episodes of the series Telescope and the groundbreaking 1964 feature Nobody Waved Goodbye from director Don Owen. She edited documentaries, television dramas, features and music films, working at one time or another for CBC-TV, CTV, the BBC and the Beatles’ company, Apple. Some of her early work was editing for directors like Claude Jutra and Francis Mankiewicz. Her long association with large-format films began when she was assistant editor on Graeme Ferguson’s stunning multi-screen documentary Polar Life, created for Expo ’67 in Montréal. With the debut of IMAX technology, Myers continued as an editor working of Ferguson’s pioneering large-format film North of Superior. She went on to edit many other IMAX films, including Ocean, Snow Job, Nomads of the Deep, Hail Columbia! and Heart Land. She served as associate producer on Rolling Stones at the Max. A key member of the IMAX space team that Ferguson assembled, Myers wrote and edited The Dream Is Alive, Destiny in Space and Blue Planet (which she also narrated), and was co-producer and writer/editor of L5: First City in Space and Mission to Mir. In 2000, Myers produced, wrote and edited the award-winning Space Station 3D, the first large-format 3D film to be shot in space. She continued the space saga with Hubble 3D, which was released in 2010.These are her credits as a Director:
