Public bio

I'm a documentary filmmaker (shocking, I know) living in New York City. I'm told I look like Steven Spielberg but I prefer Buster Keaton.

My doc credits as director include: 112 Weddings, The Kids Grow Up, 51 Birch Street, Home Page, The Heck With Hollywood! and The Children Next Door (short). My doc producing credits include: Silverlake Life, Jupiter's Wife, Paternal Instinct, A Walk Into The Sea: Danny Williams and the Warhol Factory, The Edge of Dreaming and Resurrect Dead: The Mystery of the Toynbee Tiles. Together they've played every imaginable festival, screened in theaters and been broadcast worldwide, and won a bunch of awards and accolades. Catch them now on computer screens and mobile phones everywhere!

I began a hard to pronounce blog in February, 2005 called Around the Block: Doug Block's Doc Blog where I post with amazing inconsistency.

To support my documentary habit I make verite-style wedding videos. I also consult with other filmmakers on their documentaries. In my spare time, I diddle around as co-host of The D-Word Community (which I founded in 1999). In my sparer time, I'm husband of Marjorie, father of Lucy (26) and human slave to Feathers, a very needy cockateil.
