In the film industry Doering has served as a technical consultant providing hacking and information technology dialogue on several film and television productions including the Canadian science fiction series “Continuum”, the police procedural “Motive” and the American zombie film “Dead Rising: Endgame”.

Before writing Doering worked in the casting and production department on many Canadian and American film and television productions.

Edward Snowden Movie

In September 2013, Doering and Film Director Jason Bourque set out to crowdfund a feature film titled "Classified: The Edward Snowden Story". "Classified" was a biographical feature film based on the life of NSA leaker Edward Snowden, in January 2014 production was shut down and the project was cancelled after losing several key donators due to not reaching their total 1.7 million dollar funding goal. When the production was shutdown Bourque and Doering announced that "Classified" would be split into two separate projects one titled "Vulnerability", a documentary that focuses on IT security and the internet. The second, a feature film based on Snowden’s life that would be produced in cooperation with likeminded production companies and film distributors in the near future. In January 2014 existing backers from "Classified" had the option to transfer their donations to "Vulnerability" or have the funds fully refunded. "Vulnerability" began filming in Vancouver, British Columbia on March 10, 2014.

Hacker Film Blog and other reporting

In July 2015, Doering created the Hacker Film Blog where he co-authored an article about a security breach at antivirus maker BitDefender. The story was later picked up by Forbes, The Washington Times, and PC World. Two months later in September 2015, Doering posted a documentary titled “Vulnerability: The Secrets Behind iCloud Hacking”. The documentary exposed vulnerabilities being exploited by an underground hacking collective known as RipSec, whose members breached over eleven thousand iCloud accounts, a significant portion of which belonged to Hollywood celebrities like Amanda Seyfried, Kate Mara, and Jamie Foxx.
