Robert Rollins

Born and raised in Newport Beach, Robert Rollins enjoyed a competitive life of sailing and other aquatic sports this beach city had to offer. While attending Newport Harbor High School, Robert's ability for being an animator and watercolor artist was recognized with the Bank of America Achievement Award and the Lido Marina Village Newport Art Commission.

Robert was accepted to California Institute of the Arts based solely on the merits of his portfolio while visiting the then Dean of Character Animation, Robert Winquist. It wasn't long after starting at CalArts that Robert began exploring other avenues of his artistic talent by specializing in directing, writing, and producing under the tutelage of his mentor Rudi Fehr (editor of KEY LARGO, DIAL M FOR MURDER and Academy Award Nominee for the editing of PRIZZI'S HONOR).

Since graduating, Robert has directed several short films, and does freelance assignments directing commercials, music videos, editing for the Southern California Writers Association, visual effects, graphic designs logos and posters, and has published in photography in the LA TIMES and the RESTORE HETCH HETCHY newsletter.

Several of the short films Robert directed were later collected into the science fiction anthology feature film DREAM COUNTRY. Notably, the DREAM COUNTRY segments PUMPKIN HOLLOW was screen at the LA Shorts Fest, KNIGHTFALL was awarded the prestigious Telly Award, and THE MAGIC HOURGLASS was shown at the West Coast Film Festival and received a Telly Award.

When he is not doing freelance assignments, Robert is working on the post production of his second feature film, a documentary entitled THE FRIENDSHIP, an uplifting story about his grandfather Robert H. Rollins and his dad Bob Rollins building a 45-foot wooden sailboat in their backyard in Arcadia, California, and racing it in the Transpac - a 2,557 mile sailboat race across the Pacific Ocean from Los Angeles to Honolulu.

Robert’s directing, writing and producing filmography includes: BLOOD WILL TELL (short film), DREAM COUNTRY (science fiction anthology feature film), FORTUNE’S FOOLS (short film), KNIGHTFALL (short film), LONG AFTER MIDNIGHT (short film), THE ACCIDENTAL JANITOR, DORITOS CRASH THE SUPERBOWL (commercial), THE FRIENDSHIP (feature documentary), THE MAGIC HOURGLASS (short film), PUMPKIN HOLLOW (short film) and UNLIKE YOU (music video).
