Doug Aubrey picked up his first Super 8mm camera while still a teenager on a council estate in the south-east of England during the punk era of the late 1970’s. Ever since then he has worked around the planet making films and sometimes art, talking to people, writing with a camera and telling stories that capture and document the human condition at its best and worst. For the past year he has been undergoing treatment for thyroid cancer, caused possibly by exposure to particles of depleted uranium in a conflict-zone and as a result has found himself for once the subject of a forthcoming project which he has to-date been self-financing: The Legacy of an Invisible Bullet. With his health returning he continues developing and making films, including Minefield – a feature-length documentary which he has been filming for nearly 20 years.
Critically acclaimed internationally as an award-winning Film-maker and Video Artist, Doug is also now seeking to establish challenging future creative collaborations and partnerships.
