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 kept walking past this place in my neighborhood that had this empty mascot suit in the front window, and I was like "Well, that's a sign of the times - they won't even pay to put a person in that tomato suit." The more I thought about it, I wondered how the empty suit would feel, and decided to grab some footage one day, despite the bemused looks from inside the restaurant. The result is "Tommy Tomato's Simmering Days of Rage." I hope you enjoy this micro short!
