ABOUT

DUKE

Based out of Los Angeles, I am a long time filmmaker with a string of projects under my belt.   I commit and focus on each project with an eye for every detail needed and expects the same from everyone else I work with.

 

I enjoy challenging material, especially controversial and edgy stories.  I approach everything with a keen sense of truth, no matter what genre the story is labeled.  I don't accept the notion that something has to be comedy or drama.  Instead, it has to be truthful.   If you deliver truth the audience will respond in their way of responding, whether that is laughter or crying, joy or sadness.  I do my best to stay as neutral as possible.  Even if I have a point of view I don't want the audience to know what it is.  Let them discuss the film and how they interpret the material.  I therefore stay out of the way of judging the material, but again just presenting it in a truthful matter.  After all, if what you see and hear isn't believable you quickly suspend your belief and check out.  

I love family and relationship drama.  People are fascinating and we all have great stories to tell.  The goal is telling a story with universal appeal no matter what people you write about or their situation.  There are relatable characteristics across the globe no matter what race or religion.  It comes down to one thing:  Execution.  

In addition to writing and directing features and shorts, Duke run an acting workshop in Los Angeles where he directs monthly shorts.

 

After a short hiatus I am headed back into filmmaking and will make this a phenomenal year.

 

Join me in my journey to create masterful art and unique films that will last forever, as we and engage, entertain and educate.
