I guess most worth mentioning is Way Out Ahead of Us a feature film shot over 40 days in 2018 and 2019. They’ve finished post now and are hopeful a premiere in 2020 or 2021. It’s about class and family and social values and a kid growing up and leaving her hometown. It stars 40ish first time actors and stand up people from Daggett, CA alongside a few actors from LA, including Nikki De Paris. It was well shot by Alexey Kurbatov and produced by Rob with Mark and Tracy Staggs, and others. More formal promotional content is forthcoming so stay tuned for that, but for now just accept my word (this is Rob writing / awkwardly switching between first and third person) that it will be really good and worth watching.

Thanks for being here.

This site has changed a bit – now it’s supposed to serve dual purposes as a kind of professional website for me as well as the community poetry space it used to be all about. If you click on “about” in that top left menu it should take you to the original scrolling blog format with all the poems 🙂
