Keyon Byron is the director of Batchack-Man Peacemakers: The Movie. Born and
raised in the Caribbean island of Trinidad and Tobago, Byron fell in love with the
cultural elements of this nation and its impact on the people of the Caribbean. With his
love for superheroes and films growing each day, Byron surmised that the country he
held dear in his heart should be showcased throughout the world, especially in the art
of film.


He began his craft during his teenage years, creating short videos and uploading them
to a website called, “YouTube.” With each video becoming increasingly better, and
his love for editing only growing fonder, Byron began his filmmaking journey by
creating his first great motion picture, “Batchack-Man, the power of the Herbalist.”
He would soon go on to create other outstanding achievements, utilizing the culture
and upholding the beauty of the island he dearly loves, such as, “After the
Apocalypse,” and, “Batchack-Man, the Peacemakers series.”


His recent work, “Michelle the Fall,” focuses on revenge, morality and the consequences of actions.
