Morgan Atkinson has worked as a communications professional since 1975. In 1985, he established his own video production company, Duckworks, Inc..
A native of Louisville, KY Atkinson writes and produces programs that examine issues of community and culture. His most recent project is Wonder: The Lives of Anna and Harlan Hubbard. Harlan Hubbard was a noted Kentucky artist who with wife Anna lived much as Thoreau did at Walden Pond... only they did it in Kentucky for almost 40 years.
In recent years Atkinson focused on the acclaimed writer and spiritual thinker, Thomas Merton. He also examined the life and times of John Howard Griffin, author of the groundbreaking “Black Like Me”. At present Atkinson is beginning another program on Merton, concentrating on the momentous events that occurred in final year of the monk’s life, 1968.
Atkinsons work has been featured nationwide on PBS, on KET (Kentuckys PBS affiliate) and various film festivals. Other award-winning documentaries include Live Music, the story of Louisville musician Tim Krekel; A Way of Life, a reflection on Kentuckys passion for basketball, Falls City, a wry look at Louisvilles ill-fated Falls Fountain, and Gethsemani, an account of life at the famed Trappist monastery in rural Kentucky.
