Bob's Digital Video Info Site

Updated 8/02

Yes, that is really me in the picture above. I started directing at the tender young age of four.
I have slowly been working my way "down the ladder" ever since. Seriously, I have been working in the film and video business for over 20 years, and currently offer my services as a Director of Photography, or D.P. if you like. Contact information can be found near the end of this page. Thanks for visiting.

CLICK on the PD-150 photos at left for information regarding this seldom thought about "space saving" accessory!

"Eat Your Heart Out?"

No, this is not a picture of a new "Diet" patient, but he did eat himself to death. As gross as it may seem, it is actually the work of SPFX Make-Up Artist "Kelly Gleason", for an episode of HBO's TV show called "OZ".

CLICK on the dead body photo to go to "Altered Image Studios", and buy your very own severed head, or give someone special "the finger"!
