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 munching down on a piece of cake in this store where they have an aquarium, and I was suddenly struck by this beautiful fish looking at me. The more I watched, the more she stared, and I thought I saw a loneliness or sadness in her. My wife suggested I make a film, so I grabbed my phone and shot some footage of this beautiful kissy-lipped fish. Afterwards, I put together a simple narrative, my wife recorded the voice, and I cut it together into this one-minute micro short.
