BIOGRAPHY

Cody Duckwort with director's viewfinder
CODY DUCKWORTH

For as long as I've had the capacity to do so I've wanted to tell stories. I've spent my years writing, directing, and sharing my love and passion for the art and craft of the cinema. I fell in love with filmmaking at an early age and have accumulated an extensive body of work in the process. My aspirations are and have always been to tell fascinating stories that are expressive and poignant and to make films that articulate a unique voice that captures the beauty and madness therein.
