Rob is a graduate of USC Film School who took his filmmaking and art skills to a new level with 3D Modeling and computer generated images. Rob talks about how computer generated graphics are evolving and our ability, as filmmakers, to interact with and develop these creations is changing for the better.

You know hearing Rob tout artists not being slaves to the tech and having a company that understands that, is so very important. I know that NewTek has made a wise choice in acquiring his talent and street cred.

I think NewTek’s new motto should be what Rob said,
“Artists, stop being a prisoner to Bull ****!” :D

Thanks NewTek and Rob I am looking forward to what’s coming.
