Toni Myers, who directed Imax space documentaries, like “Space Station 3D,” which required her to turn astronauts into cinematographers, died on Monday at her home in Toronto. She was 75.
Her family said the cause was cancer.
Ms. Myers’s half-century in filmmaking included credits as writer, producer, narrator and editor as well as director. Much of that work involved documentaries that made use of Imax technology, which, with a bigger screen and enhanced sound, creates a more vivid viewing experience than a conventional movie offers.
“Toni’s incredible contributions to Imax’s legacy and the world of film are only matched by her passion, kindness and unique ability to inspire hope in others through storytelling,” Rich Gelfond, chief executive of the Imax Corporation, said in a statement.
“Hubble 3D” (2010), which documented a 2009 shuttle flight to repair the Hubble telescope; and “A Beautiful Planet” (2016), which concentrated on images of Earth shot from space.
