Morgan Spurlock's Academy Award nominated documentary, “Super Size Me,” is a “tongue-in-cheek - and burger in hand - look at the legal, financial and physical costs of America's hunger for fast food.” In addition to a host of international awards, “Super Size Me,” won the Best Director Award at the Sundance Film Festival. Spurlock, a writer, director, and producer of everything from plays to music videos to television shows, has completed 60 projects over the past 12 years for companies such as MTV, ESPN, NBC, FOX, TNT, VH-1, Sony, and MCA Records. Spurlock's newest undertaking, the reality show “30 Days” on FX, is an unscripted, documentary-style program where an individual is inserted into a lifestyle that is completely different from his or her upbringing, beliefs, religion or profession for 30 days.

Joanne Byrd Rogers and Jeannine Romer Morrison began performing together in the 1950s while students at Rollins College Conservatory of Music. Rogers, the widow of the famed “Mr. Rogers” of PBS' “Mister Rogers Neighborhood,” earned her master's degree studying with Ernst von Dohnanyi at Florida State University. (A composer, pianist and conductor, Von Dohnanyi served as the conductor of the Budapest Philharmonic Orchestra for 25 years before coming to the United States in 1949.) Morrison, named the 2003 “Outstanding Teacher of the Year” by the Georgia Music Teachers' Association, earned her master's degree at Teachers College at Columbia University studying with the eminent teacher and pianist Edwin Hughes. Together, Rogers and Morrison have performed more than 300 duo recital concerts, with a repertoire consisting of classical, romantic and contemporary literature for piano duo and duet, as well as concerti for two pianos. They have also recorded two CDs, “Duo Piano Favorites” and “Duo Piano Virtuoso: A Virtuoso Duo Piano Showcase.”
