From an early age Rob was turning his family holidays into full-film shoots with late finishes and sunrise starts. Decades later and he's still at it...
A graduate in Directing from the prestigious National Film and Television School (where he was David Lean Scholar) Rob is now co-director of the creative studio Milkwood.
Much of Rob’s work focusses on people and place and whether in narrative fiction or documentary, his films challenge preconceptions by always striving to look at things from a different angle. His background in social geography fuels this desire to get under the skin of things, and to point his camera at things unseen. He has just completed Upstream (BBC Four) with the writer Robert Macfarlane. Billed as a 'dream-flight into wildness and winter’, Upstream was filmed entirely from the air and follows the course of a Scottish river to its source in the Cairngorm mountains. He is also working on a number of other feature and installation projects.
In addition to his work with Milkwood, Rob is part of the comedy collective Duke.
