Film director, producer, screenwriter
Peyton was born in Gander, Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada. He graduated from the Canadian Film Centre. He first gained fame with a short film and gothic comedy entitled Evelyn: The Cutest Evil Dead Girl (2002). The film was initially shown to Peyton's classmates, who clapped in approval. Filmmaker Jeremy Podeswa thus suggested Peyton should also show the film to a lawyer in the film industry in New York. This allowed the film to be distributed among the filmmaking elite. Evelyn also appeared in the Toronto International Film Festival in 2002. He then created and produced the claymation television series What It's Like Being Alone, which was picked up by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation in 2006. Reportedly, one of Peyton's mentors is US actor Tom Hanks.
