About Us (Bonus Movie)
Douglas Morse, writer, director, etc
After his first feature, The Adulterer did the festival circuit, won some awards, got some great press and failed to find distribution; he knew he had to find a different model. Micro-budget cinema with specialized distribution was the answer. His next film, 2000 Miles to Maine: Adventures on the Appalachian Trail cost a pittance and continues to sell well through Amazon, The Appalachian Trail Conservancy, and LL Bean’s flagship store in Freeport, Maine. His next two features were adaptations of classical works, funded in part with university grants. The largest distributor of educational media, Films for the Humanities, carries both these movies: The Summoning of Everyman and The Merchant of Venice. His sixth project is an adaptation of Christopher Marlow’s brilliant satire, The Jew of Malta, also carried by Films for the Humanities. Doug currently teaches at The New School and he received his MFA from NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts.
And now for something (completely) different...a movie about Superspies from Outer Space. Enjoy!
