I first met Robbie while searching for a composer for “The Sugar Bowl”, a film I shot and co-directed over two weeks in the Philippines with my production partner Shasha Nakhai. This project was very near and dear to both Shasha and I. It was our documentary debut and we fought hard at every stage to meet the level of quality exhibited by the films we admired in spite of our limited budget.
Robbie was very open with his ideas; he would listen and come up with themes on the spot, send his work for us to critique and, if we wanted to change it, he would be energized by our commitment to perfection, and excited for us to hear the next pass.
He’s a collaborator in the truest sense. Suffice to say, Robbie’s work on “The Sugar Bowl” was excellent and we’ve been working together ever since. I continue to work with Rob not only for his strong work ethic and unwavering commitment to his projects, but because I can relate with him as an artist.
