Richard Martin first achieved significant notice in the film industry as an editor, having been nominated in 1986 for a Genie Award for Best Achievement in Film Editing for the independent film biography Samuel Lount (1985). Within a few years, he moved to directing, beginning with the 1990 Canadian murder mystery Matinee, for which he also received a screenwriting credit. His directing career since has primarily involved him in television.

Among others, he has directed episodes of Highlander: The Series, Queen of Swords, The Sausage Factory, Mysterious Ways and Young Blades. His direction of the Hollywood Off-Ramp episode "Death by Gossip" won him a 2001 Leo Award for "Best Director of a Music, Comedy or Variety Program or Series."
