Twenty Feet From Stardom.

Doug Blush:  Supervising Editor

Client: Morgan Neville/Tremolo Productions

Doug joined director Morgan Neville and Tremolo Productions to oversee the edit of this Oscar-winning and box office breakout documentary. Doug’s second collaboration with Morgan Neville (after TROUBADOURS) also brought him the 2014 American Cinema Editors (ACE) Best Documentary Editing Awards, along with co-editors Kevin Klauber and Jason Zeldes. Doug was inducted into the ACE that year as well.


Millions know their voices, but no one knows their names. In his compelling new film TWENTY FEET FROM STARDOM, award-winning director Morgan Neville shines a spotlight on the untold true story of the backup singers behind some of the greatest musical legends of the 21st century. Triumphant and heartbreaking in equal measure, the film is both a tribute to the unsung voices who brought shape and style to popular music and a reflection on the conflicts, sacrifices and rewards of a career spent harmonizing with others.

These gifted artists span a range of styles, genres and eras of popular music, but each has a uniquely fascinating and personal story to share of life spent in the shadows of superstardom.

Along with rare archival footage and a peerless soundtrack, TWENTY FEET FROM STARDOM boasts intimate interviews with Bruce Springsteen, Stevie Wonder, Mick Jagger and Sting to name just a few. However, these world-famous figures take a backseat to the diverse array of backup singers whose lives and stories take center stage in the film.
