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

Deathbed Regrets is an experimental film project by director Robert David Duncan. Deathbed Regrets is a crowd-sourced documentary based on a simple premise - that if we take the time to envision what our greatest regrets in life might be, there is often still time to change the course of our lives. Just the exercise of going through the thought process can leave people happier and on a better course in life. Part documentary film, part exercise in shared enlightenment, the project invited people to submit a 30-60 second self-taped video segment (shot using a smartphone).
