Mini Bio (1)

Rob Cotterill has been working in film since 1994, starting while going to Concordia University in Montreal. His first taste of working on a film set was on Karim Hussein's "Subconscious Cruelty" and after he worked on several of Mitch Davis' projects at Infliction Films. After completing school, Rob began working in the industry as an Assistant Director and still does. Through fate, on the set of Trailer Park Boys, Rob met Jason Eisener, whom he quickly forgot until a year later, when they met again, and began talking about making films. A partnership was born, beginning with the still in production documentary about Halifax's Pink Velvet Burlesque Troop, and later with the collaboration on Hobo With A Shotgun. Now with a strong creative team, including Jason & writer John Davies, the trio have a slew of projects in various stages of development and plan to take Halifax over by force. Rob & Jason's latest short film - "Treevenge" is a black comedy on the trials and tribulations of being a Christmas Tree.

Personal Quotes (1)

[Speaking of how he and his co-conspirators approached making "Hobo with a Shotgun"] One of the things I thought we did extremely well was reining in the silly. The movie is funny, but it's played totally straight, because that's where the funny comes from. It exists totally in its own world, and that's everyone's reality within it. There's none of this making audiences aware we're doing a throwback; we were making an honest movie.
