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 recently uncovered a bunch of my writing from when I lived in Paris as a younger man, many years ago. One of the pieces recounted my last day before I left Paris, seeing my favorite places one last time. I blended some narrative excerpts with old photos and memorabilia, using an experimental technique I call swipescaping, which makes use of the smartphone's ability to impart motion and dynamism to static objects. The result is an imaginative fictional excursion through the thoughts and journeys of a special day.
