Mini Bio (1)

Bob began making films at the age of 10, when he got together with other kids from his neighborhood and shot movies on his father's 8mm Bell & Howell camera. He experimented with animation and stop-motion photography, and developed a knack for special effects.

In high school, a special "Cinematography" course was designed for him by his English teacher Mrs. Dumbrowski, and he made a longer form Super8 film entitled "Run Amok". The film featured liberal use of pyrotechnics and special effects, and was his first substantial acting role.

In the 1980s, Bob began working with video. He shot extensively on VHS and edited his projects between two VCRs. He also used an Apple IIe computer to generate titles for his 1985 documentary on BASE jumping off the New River Bridge in West Virginia entitled "Bridge Day '85". Bob not only created the documentary, but was taped making a successful jump from the bridge.

In 2004 he began using digital video, and his work with public access TV was recognized when he was nominated for a "Tommy" award for his public service announcement about voting. He created a documentary in 2005 combining elements of live footage with historical film and images with music and voice-over entitled "The Air Line Rail Trail".

In 2006 he became involved in video blogging and has over 100 political videos on Youtube. He is also prominently featured in the BBC/Sundance Channel documentary "Blog Wars".

Today Bob is continuing his involvement in political video and creative filmmaking.
