David E Duncan has worked for nearly 35 years in the entertainment industry as a director, VFX supervisor, storyboard artist, and pre-vis creator for major studios, network television, and cable documentary series. With an early background in drafting and photography, he began shooting documentaries in college, followed by a number of years as a cameraman and 2nd unit director. He merged his love of art and cinematography to form a visual effects house in Denver in 1990, but after several years of matte painting and supervising motion control photography, made the move to LA in the mid-1990s, where he supervised visual effects on several Network television series and features. Soon he found he enjoyed the more consistent work as an illustrator and animatic editor/animator, working with directors such as Ridley Scott, Jon Favreau and Dean Devlin. David has contributed to a number of franchises including Star Trek, Star Wars, The X-Files, Chronicles of Narnia, and the first several Marvel Studios productions, and more recently helped to establish the visual style of the first season of "The Mandalorian."
