Byron F. Meyers

Byron F. Meyers, a veteran industryite who served in numerous production capacities during his career, died Nov. 1 of cancer in Los Angeles. He was 59.

Meyers began his career in 1963, working as an assistant on “The Outer Limits” TV series and later worked on “The Fugitive.” His background in post production and as a production manager, enabled him to serve as a director and editor on commercials, industrial and educational films.

During the 1970s, Meyers moved into film and animation production with credits including “Purple Rain.”

Following a stint with President Carter’s re-election campaign, Meyers worked as a managing partner in BFM Enterprises and also was a creative consultant and post-production supervisor for MGM/UA Home video.

At the time of his passing, he was president of a relatively new production company called Five Points Entertainment.

He is survived by a brother.

A memorial is being planned for late November in Los Angeles.

Family suggests donations in his name be made to the City of Hope.
