Director Biography - Robert David Duncan

My core training in acting is from the Stella Adler Studio in New York. I love acting and filmmaking and Vancouver where I now live is a beautiful place to make films. I am interested in the dramas, delights, passions and heartbreaks that take place in everyday interactions (or lack thereof) between ordinary people. Most of my films have dealt with human-scale issues such as tough choices, love, dreams, hope and finding meaning and fun in life. I love an underdog story! My motto is don't let anything get in the way of telling a story that might uplift someone - film it with your smartphone if that's what you have, but get it done and share it with the world.

Director Statement

I was in Venice, California, on the trail of the late Jim Morrison, checking out places he had lived and hung out, grabbing some footage for a larger project. I came across this cool fortune-telling automation near the Boardwalk at Venice Beach and grabbed a bit of vertical footage. I then put this footage into an imagined encounter between the rock star and the machine. A bit of fun fantasia in this micro short.
