His music is heard in a wide range of films from "Last Samurai" to "Star Wars-Ewok" cartoons. His biggest project of 2005 is his musical compositions for PBS monster "The War that Made America," and in 2006 contributed several score pieces to "Lost Landscapes, another PBS full-run, which has been nominated for an Emmy.

Spot may also be found in the various forums as a host on subjects from compositing, HDV, Sony Vegas, to audio engineering. He also has won many awards for his documentaries, including "Toubat: A Journey of the Native American Flute" and "The Way of the Powwow."

His technical books include subjects such as Apple's Soundtrack, Sony's Vegas, Adobe's Encore, and DV Basics, and author of the industry best-selling "HDV: What You NEED to Know," and "Instant Vegas."

As a VASST trainer, Douglas has been around the world several times over. Training in areas as diverse as Australia, Singapore, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Guatemala, Bolivia, Dominican Republic, Sweden, Russia, England, Germany, France, Holland, Israel, Canada, Japan, he has gained a powerful understanding of what people want to know, and how they'd like to best learn it. A dynamic speaker, an inspiration to the industry, and a doer rather than a talker, Douglas simply is wonderful to experience. Catch this guy where you can, because he never stays in one place very long.
