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

My wife found a cattail plant on the sidewalk while we were going for coffee one morning, and immediately started to play with it and have fun. We got kind of lost in playing, while people scurried by, some no doubt annoyed by all this fluff flying around. Later on, I was thinking about life: what is it for if not for playing? That was the inspiration for this micro short. It is dedicated to the memory of my wife's father, who passed away between the shoot and the final cut.
