Hello Stage 32!! It’s exciting to have this “Introduce Yourself” weekend! My name is Robert David Olsen, and I’m a director, screenwriter, and visual effects artist from Tucson, Arizona. I’ve spent the last 8 years as an animator, graphic designer, and visual effects artist for the ABC affiliate, KGUN-TV here in the desert. In that time, I have earned two Edward R. Murrow awards, and I’ve been nominated for Emmy’s on 3 different occasions for my work in visual effects and animation. In that time, I have also learned every aspect in the process of television and film production, from pre-production to post-production. I am currently working on my 3rd film with vfx, and it is a full-length feature titled El Alambrista: La Venganza, starring Jake “The Snake” Roberts. As VFX Supervisor, I was responsible for nearly 100 vfx shots in the film, which is slated to premiere at The Loft Cinema in Tucson on October 11, 2014 at 7:00pm! Earlier this year, I completed my first full-length feature screenplay. The running title on it is The A’tahsaia Project. I am currently looking for funding to make the film a reality, and my crew and I are also in the process of creating the novel version of the film. I have created a website to promote the project, and we’re looking forward to finding the best people to work with, so what better place to look than Stage 32! The link to the project is right here! http://robgfxrtst.wix.com/theatahsaiaproject Please take a few minutes and check it out! You will not be disappointed in what you see! I look forward to connecting with every single person on the site!!!
