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

It's not everyday that you walk past an ice cream carton bleeding out on the sidewalk. I couldn't resist the urge to grab some footage and a couple of stills with my phone. When I looked at the footage later, I suddenly caught the significance of the maple leaf on the puddle of spilled ice cream, like a "calling card" that lets people know who did the deed. Aha! Then I was thinking crime drama and an encounter between rival ice cream flavors that went murderously wrong. I recorded the narrative and pulled this fun little micro short together. I hope you enjoy it!
