Paul Saltzman

b.1943
Paul Saltzman began his media career at the National Film Board of Canada (production manager, assistant director) and the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (public affairs story-editor and on-air host). In 1967 he interviewed American inventor and visionary Buckminster Fuller, who would later say that Saltzman changed his assessment of the '60s generation.

Early in 1968 he learned meditation at the Maharishi Mahesh Yogi's ashram in India. It was a profound experience that changed his life. During his time there, he met, hung out with and photographed the Beatles, Mia Farrow, Donovan and Mike Love. Saltzman is currently developing several feature film scripts. His latest documentary, Prom Night in Mississippi - made with Academy Award-winning actor Morgan Freeman - was just accepted into the upcoming Sundance Film Festival!

He loves traveling, skydiving and scuba diving, and plays ice hockey several times a week. He has one daughter.
