Martin Wood is back as both Executive Producer and Director for the third season of the groundbreaking sci fi series Sanctuary. Credited with directing more than 50 episodes of the long running science fiction series Stargate SG-1, more than 30 episodes of its spin-off series Stargate Atlantis, as well as the DVD movie Stargate Continuum (which included a spectacular shoot in the High Arctic involving the US Navy), Wood brings a level of expertise to the television genre of science fiction that is unmatched.

The talented director’s work on Sanctuary was recently nominated for a Directors Guild of Canada Award as well as a 2010 Leo Award, honouring the best in British Columbian Film and Television. The previous year, he was recognized with a directing nomination for the feature length drama Stargate Continuum.

In 2007, Martin Wood, along with his former Stargate SG-1/Stargate Atlantis colleagues Damian Kindler and Amanda Tapping, launched Sanctuary - the first broadcast-quality online series direct to the Internet. Within the first six months of being on the web, Sanctuary received over 3.7 million views and downloads across the Internet.

After two very successful seasons on television, Wood is again behind the camera directing and executive producing Sanctuary. The groundbreaking series films almost entirely on green screen and uses the innovative RED camera, which captures images at four-times the resolution of traditional high-definition cameras.

Wood has also directed multiple episodes of the series Andromeda, Jeremiah, Earth: Final Conflict, Silk Stalkings, and Syfy’s The Invisible Man. In the fall of 2000, he directed the feature film The Impossible Elephant, which won “Audience Favorite” at the Toronto International Children’s Film Festival and a nomination for a Director’s Guild Award in 2002.

His documentary film credits include writing and directing four episodes of CBC’s Life & Times biography series as well as The Great Run of China, SIDS: A Special Report and If Trees Could Talk: A Study of Intolerance.
