ISLAND OF LEMURS: MADAGASCAR
DAVID DOUGLAS (Director/Cinematographer) has helmed and
photographed large format documentary benchmarks, including the Oscar-nominated
"Fires of Kuwait," which also received the GSTA Maximum Image Award for Best
Classic IMAX film; critically acclaimed "Survival Island"; as well as the first
IMAX concert feature, "Rolling Stones: At the MAX," which captures the world's
greatest rock and roll band on their massive Steel Wheels tour and earned the
GSTA Maximum Image Award. He also wrote, directed and photographed "Wolves" for
the National Wildlife Federation and "Straight Up: Helicopters in Action," which
premiered at the Smithsonian Institution's National Air and Space Museum.
Douglas' first high school multiple-image documentary led to employment at
Multiscreen Corp. by the inventors of the IMAX system/fathers of the large
format film industry, Robert Kerr, Bill Shaw, Roman Kroitor and Graeme Ferguson.
He later spent 18 months training dozens of astronauts to be filmmakers on
Ferguson's IMAX Space Team, supporting their orbital efforts on 14 shuttle
flights from mission control, as well as shooting the terrestrial images for the
original IMAX space series, "The Dream is Alive," "Blue Planet," "Destiny in
Space" and "Mission to Mir."
Constantly moving between directing and cinematography, Douglas has
photographed over thirty films for IMAX Corporation and other clients, including
most recently, the IMAX documentaries "Born To Be Wild" and "All Access: Front
Row, Backstage, Live!," and provided additional photography on the IMAX space
documentaries "Space Station 3D," and "Hubble 3D."
In 2002, he was honored with the Kodak Vision award, and in 2010 received the
IMAX Hall of Fame Award.
