Duncan’s outcast lens weaves uncanny stories into filmmaking to address how humanity reconciles with our chaotic, often incomprehensible, divisive world. He is the director and producer of thecharacter-driven documentary titled “One Paycheck Away” (currently in development) focusing on the hardworking Americans who are living through the tumultuous transition from a stable working and middle class existence to one that is barely surviving. One Paycheck Away is not another top down approach documentary; rather, it is the true stories of individuals, families, and communities struggling to for workable solutions in a world increasingly hampered by the status quo.
