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'm quite fascinated by squirrels, and the way they move so fluidly between urban and wild environments, apparently harming very little as they go about their business. I happened upon this particular squirrel in Stanley Park one day and shot some fun footage of him, later marrying the imagery to a recorded narrative to create this film "Samuel Squirrel Speaks."
