Derby's first feature documentary, Rocks with Wings,
was a labor of love, made over a period of fourteen years. In
2002 the film won the Best Feature Film Award and the Visionary
Award for Directing at the Native American Film & Television
Alliance Film Festival. The same year it also received the HBO
Documentary Feature Prize at the UrbanWorld Film Festival. Derby
has for many years edited, written, and produced film and television,
including work as an editor on Dateline NBC. He received a B.A.
in communications from Boston College. Derby was raised in Hinsdale,
Massachusetts, a small town in the Berkshires, and lives in New
"What comes to mind as important, vital even, is not what
camera is used, the number of shooting days, or who was my DP,
but rather these life moments and realizations that link me to
this story, probably for the rest of my life. In considering the
background or birth of Rock with Wings, I have come to
one realizationif a film is to become timeless, almost mythical,
it must equally tell the combined, invisibly interwoven stories
of both the subject and the filmmaker."
