Robert is a member of our Grip team.
I first met Robert when he volunteered to come out and lend a hand with shooting our Blood Drive back in November, and he’s someone that I’m really looking forward to working with on the set of Predatory Moon. He’s very enthusiastic about the project and (as you can see from his photo) he’s got a great sense of humor.
He’s also one of the busiest people I know. Asides from his job as a nuclear field manager, he’s been working on a lot of film and video projects including the short film Jonathan Simon: The Exchange, and the feature Pharmboy.
Robert is the drummer for the Florida eclectic hard rock/metal band Catalyst: He started Monument: Productions with co-founder Scott Keene initially as the recording enterprise for the band, which grew to providing photography, music, video, and production aid for other musicians, bands, and others in need of visual or musical production. For Monument: he does most of the principal photography, recording engineering, directing, and producing. You can learn more about Monument: here http://www.facebook.com/monumentproductions
Recently he recorded and produced the band Black Towers’ 4 song EP, and he also produced, directed, and filmed a video for the catalyst: song “A Ghost Unknown”.
