Director Biography

Duvale Murchison starting his acting career at the age of 51 in October 2014. His first job ever being on a movie set was to play the role of a non-speaking extra in the superhero blockbuster Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice.

Because of his experience in working for the Michigan Department of Corrections, Duvale made a small suggestion about a prison scene that resulted in him being told "do that on camera" by Director Zack Snyder.

Suffice it to say, the rest is history.
