All About doug

Director doug werby has a true talent for docu-style branded work, with authentic performance and beautiful imagery at the heart of each project. He started directing comedy and returns to it from time to time. He can both direct and edit, which makes him a true silver bullet. His keen sense of timing and appreciation for the human condition (comedic and otherwise) shines in his projects for such clients as Google, Wells Fargo, Safeway, Bank of America, Yahoo and Charles Schwab.

His personal mission statement is to provide intensely creative filmmaking, a desire that was sparked as an early child following in the footsteps of celluloid heroes. For this creativity, doug has received awards and recognition from D&AD, 20th Anniversary Gold Telly, Bronze Telly, and Ad Club.

In addition to commercials and other brand-based projects, doug applies his directing talent to music videos, short films and the kaboom-produced docu-series for Fox Sports & National Geographic: The Master Guide.

Even More About Doug

doug has been with kaboom since the beginning, when we were shooting with rocks and editing on the walls of caves. He brings his editor’s eye for pacing and storytelling together with the aesthetic eye of a filmmaker and a comedian’s eye for timing.

Despite having three eyes, doug is a great guy to work with. He’s also a dedicated father who’s not afraid to defy child labor laws, forcing his daughter to act in spots for his reel. Ever on the scout for fresh talent, doug picked up two more teenage boys recently via his life partner, who also happens to be a photographer. And French. (French life-partner plusses: long vacations in France. French life-partner minuses: strict Mediterranean diet.)

doug’s work is trending away from the comedic of late and more toward real people. He even shoots real people with whom he has no genetic link! doug is a fine filmmaker, a pleasure to work with, and admits to once having tried a Jägerbomb — though he claims he never inhaled.
