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.

I rounded the corner while walking around Lost Lagoon in Vancouver and came face-to-face with a big river otter. Trust me, we were both surprised by this encounter! While fumbling for my phone to grab some footage, I was thinking "Wait, you should be in a movie!" Later, I was chuckling about that idea, and decided to pull together this micro short about a dodgy film producer trying to get the otter to be in his picture. All puns intended. Enjoy!
