ABOUT THIS FILM
Morgan Spurlock, producer/director/guinea pig of Super Size Me, was sitting on the couch at his childhood home in West Virginia on Thanksgiving 2002, stuffed with turkey and all the fixings, when the concept behind Super Size Me came to him.

"I was so full and was watching the news when a story about the two girls suing McDonald's came on the TV. I immediately called Scott (Ambrozy, Director of Photography) and told him the idea. When he finished laughing, he said 'That's a really great bad idea.' By the time I got back to New York, we were already in pre-production on it."

A native of West Virginia, Spurlock is an award-winning writer, director and producer. He is also the founder of The Con, the New York based production company behind the film whose goal is to level the playing field in the world of production.

Super Size Me is Spurlock's first feature film.

A graduate of New York University's Tisch School of the Arts, Spurlock has conceived and created more than 60 projects during his 12 years in the industry. From commercials to music videos to television shows, Spurlock has had the privilege of working with such companies as MTV, ESPN, NBC, FOX, TNT, VH-1, Sony and MCA Records.

In 1999, Spurlock's full-length play, The Phoenix, won the Audience Favorite Award at the New York International Fringe Festival. He subsequently picked up Best Play honors at the Route 66 American Playwrighting Competition in January, 2000.

In 2000, Spurlock's corporate image piece for the Sony Corporation, "Do You Dream in Sony?", won the Chicago Film Festival for Corporate Production and the U.S. Film and Video Festival for top Multi-Image Production.

The Con created the hit web show I Bet You Will in 2000, and jumped the program from the Internet to MTV in 2002, becoming the first show ever to do so. After producing 53 episodes for the network, the company took its profits and used them to fund their first feature film, the fast food documentary Super Size Me.
