In 2014 Moore co-directed a segment of the Salma Hayek produced film The Prophet with Ross Stewart, adapted from Kahlil Gibran’s book of prose poetry essays, The Prophet. The production consisted of different directors for each of the film’s collective essays, with animation director, Roger Allers supervising and credited as screenwriter. Both of Moore’s 2014 films received their world premiere at the 2014 Toronto International Film Festival.
