Martin began his career in-front of the camera before making the switch to working behind it. He soon started working on idents and low budget music videos before progressing to narrative storytelling in technology driven short films. Including the UKs first live action stereoscopic 3D short.
After pursuing a feature film for many years, the opportunity finally presented itself in the guise of the low budget, social satire LA Slasher starring Dave Bautista and Danny Trejo.
Martin then progressed to his second feature, the technology driven thriller Let’s Be Evil which premiered at Frightfest in the UK and Slamdance in the US.
Next was the dark comedy thriller Killers Anonymous, shot mostly at Ealing Studios and featuring a cast including Gary Oldman and Jessica Alba, released by Lionsgate. The film was odd, quirky and colourful. A trait that would be continued into The Intergalactic Adventures of Max Cloud. The utterly bonkers space adventure set inside a fictional 90’s video game. Max Cloud was released in December 2020 by Well Go USA.
Next was Sky Original, Twist, a modern day reimagining of the beloved classic Oliver Twist for Sky. The cast includes Sir Michael Caine as Fagin, Lena Headey as Sikes and Rita Ora.
Martins has just completed “The Loneliest Boy in the World”.
