For this creativity, doug has received commercial awards and recognition from the Clio’s, D&AD, multiple Telly Awards including the 20th Anniversary Gold, Halo and Ad Club.

Director Statement

I love what I do which is telling stories through moving images. I have extensive experience working in film, television, web, social and commercials. Currently I direct commercial spots through Kaboom Productions San Francisco and LA offices. All non-commercial work I do through my own production company Ballistic Pictures Inc. or as a loan out video director. This includes full-up production and post-production editorial services, interactive media creation and loan out directing for TV series. My hope is to build on all my experiences while challenging myself creatively to produce new narrative works such as “No Tricks”. My personal mission statement is to provide intensely creative, collaborative filmmaking, and to create work that informs and inspires
