Doug worked as prop master and assistant production designer on ‘Slow Learners’, the feature romantic comedy directed by Don Argott & Sheena M. Joyce (The Art of the Steal, Last Days Here). The film was an official selection of the 2015 Sundance Film Festival where it was picked up for distribution by Sundance Selects, opening in limited theaters across the US and now available on all VOD platforms!
Starring Adam Pally (Happy Endings, The Mindy Project) as Jeff and Sarah Burns (I Love You Man, Enlightened) as Anne, two close friends and co-workers in a suburban high school who are embarrassingly unlucky at love. With nothing else to lose, they hatch a plan to transform themselves over the course of a sex-and-alcohol-fueled summer into the cool, confident people they aspire to be. At first an exhilarating adventure of self-discovery, Jeff and Anne’s journey turns into a laugh-out-loud experiment as they lose their identities, their dignity, and quite possibly each other.
Cast by Emmy-winning casting director Allison Jones (The Office, 40-Year Old Virgin, Bridesmaids), the talented cast includes Reid Scott (Veep), Catherine Reitman (It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia), Kevin Dunn, Kate Flannery, Charlie McDermott and SNL cast members Bobby Moynihan and Cecily Strong. Slow Learners is an alternately raunchy and sweet look at love and the crazy things people will do to find it.
“An amusing comedy full of deadpan humor, verbal gymnastics and manic antics.”
