Ever since he began making films at the age of 10 with a Kodak camera his father gave him for his birthday, David Winning has dedicated his professional life to the filmmaking process. He made short films in high school with his friends, leading to a Canada Council Exploration grant for his first 16mm project (later blown up to 35mm for screenings in the U.K.), entitled "Sequence." This success led the then 22-year-old director to expand his vision into the feature-length drama "Storm." It too garnered praise after its 1987 release. Winning turned to television in the '90s, helming multiple episodes of shows like the action series"Street Justice," the spooky family mysteries "Are You Afraid of the Dark?," and "Goosebumps." He hit big in 1997 with the feature- length film version of the kids' action phenomenon "Turbo: A Power Rangers Movie" and continued exploring youth themes in two teen comedy programs for TV, "Breaker High" and "Sweet Valley High." Winning has turned his attention to the horror and science fiction genres in the 2000s, directing several episodes of "Earth: Final Conflict," "Andromeda," and "Dinotopia." Winning also helmed the horror films "Black Swarm" and "Swamp Devil." He has won numerous directorial awards from film festivals throughout the United States and Canada. In 2011, Winning directed two episodes of the horror comedy series "Todd and the Book of Pure Evil ."
