Mini Bio (1)
Writer/director/producer Ed Hunt was raised in Los Angeles. He first developed an interest in cinema while in his early teens. Hunt decided he wanted to be a movie director at age fifteen and began writing screenplays in order to achieve this goal. Ed attended UCLA initially as a chemistry major, but soon changed his studies to film. Following graduation Hunt began working in the motion picture business in various minor capacities that included set builder and microphone operator. Moreover, he also worked as an editor and director of both industrial and educational documentaries. Ed moved to Canada in late 1969. He made his feature debut with the soft-core items "Pleasure Palace" and "Diary of a Sinner," both of which cost $50 thousand dollars each. Hunt next made the sci-fi cheapie "Point of No Return." This led to his biggest project yet: the enjoyably inane science fiction howler "Starship Invasions," which was made on a one million dollar budget. Ed's tense virus thriller "Plague" was especially well received; it won awards for both Best Picture and Best Screenplay at the 12th Annual Sitges International Film Festival. Hunt subsequently moved back to California. He both directed and co-wrote the acclaimed speculative documentary "UFOs Are Real." Ed did three more movies: the nifty killer kids fright flick "Bloody Birthday," the gloriously ridiculous urban vigilante Jesus Christ sci-fi parable "Alien Warrior," and the fun monster horror opus "The Brain." Alas, this latter picture proved to be Ed Hunt's final cinematic venture.
