CEO and Co-Founder, Ridgeline Entertainment
Doug Stanley's experience in television production is extensive in both 2D and 3D. With two decades of primetime production, Doug has been honored with six Primetime Emmy Award nominations. He recently won the 2008 Primetime Emmy Award for his work on Discovery Channel's hit show Deadliest Catch, where he has been the longest-standing producer and also served six seasons as series director of photography. Doug is also a producer and the director of photography for Animal Planet's current series The Last American Cowboy.
During the late '90s, Doug was the general manager of C-3D Television, an early stereoscopic 3D network. In the role of executive producer, Doug supervised the creation of original 3D television shows, promos, and other interstitial content, including network identity, all in 3D. This programming was broadcast initially in C-band, but later in KU-band transmitting via the GE-3 Satellite.
Through this period, Doug traveled and studied 3D in Japan, Korea, China, and Canada. He feels fortunate to have gained much of his education from 3D greats such as John Rupkalvis and Paul Taylor, as well as from other significant 3D pioneers.
