About Douglas

I’m a 37 year veteran of the film industry. A member of the Directors Guild of America for 28 years, having performed the duties of Director, Assistant Director, Writer, 2nd Unit Director, and Producer (partial credits on IMDB). Credits range from large-budget Studio Productions to low-budget Independents and include over 30 Feature films such as; Starman, The Program, Rambo III, The Ghost and the Darkness, Men of Honor, Reign of Fire, and the award-winning From A Place of Darkness (Best Film, Best Supporting Actor, nominated for best screenplay)

As a writer, I adapted two best-selling novels into screenplays and wrote ten original screenplays. Utilizing what I learned in the independent arena, I’ve directed, written, and produced numerous award-winning shorts, an award-winning feature, and satirical commercials for Saturday Night Live.
