In 2009 Rob wrote what would be his first feature film. Inspired by his 12 years working
in a Call Centre, and life as a father of a special needs child, he put pen to pad and wrote
“Calling”. The film was a story about a man, Rick, coming to grips with the reality of his son’s condition.
On the same day he learned of massive layoffs at his company. As it turns out, Rob
would find himself in the very same situation not many years later. “Calling” was not
only Rob’s first feature film, it was his introduction to a world he never thought possible,
writing and telling stories. He formed “Let Em Laugh Productions” and the rest as they
say, is history. He was travelling a new path in life.
Since 2009 Rob has written and directed a second feature film “The Divorce”, is a producer, co-director & videographer for “Simply Zen”, Elaine Shannon’s television show,
was the first AD on another full length this past summer, wrote & shot a teaser for a television show he is developing, and is gearing up for pre-production on his next full length
feature “My Brother Baxter”, which is a departure from the crude comedy that he and the
Let Em Laugh team are known for.
Rob believes in the “Yes we can” attitude, something he and his team preach for every
project. Anyone can laugh and never take the chance, but Rob and everyone he works
with simply push forward, and Let Em Laugh, we’ll do it regardless.
