About Robert

Hello, everyone, I'll keep this short and sweet. I'm an aspiring screenwriter and produced playwright living in Queens, NYC. I've read scripts and done various odd jobs for a couple of production companies. I received an MFA in Media from City College, after which I worked on a couple of documentaries as an assistant editor. I've been writing stories since I was a kid and never want to stop.

    Film (Documentary, Biography and Sport) Editorial department Feature-length documentary about the greatest diver of all time.

Now, the openly gay, HIV+ world-class athlete returns to diving to mentor the USA Olympic hopefuls. This may be his best chance to regain the notoriety -- and financial stability -- he enjoyed at the height of his career. Written by Anonymous

  • How to Survive a Plague

    How to Survive a Plague (2012)
    Film (Documentary, History and News) Editorial department In the early years of the AIDS epidemic, the disease was considered a death sentence affecting communities, like the LGBT ones, whom many in power felt deserved it. This film tells the story of how militant activists like ACT-UP and TAG pushed for a meaningful response to this serious public health problem. As the activists struggled against political indifference, religious hostility, corporate greed and apparently skewed scientific research priorities with determination and sheer audacity, they produced a political wave that would lead to not only an effective treatment regime, but would advance LGBT rights beyond anyone's expectations.

  • Sync or Swim

    Sync or Swim (2008)
    Film (Documentary) Editorial department Following the journey of a group of young women as they compete for spots on the 2004 U.S. synchronized swimming team and train relentlessly to win an Olympic medal, Sync or Swim offers a uniquely intimate look at a mocked and misunderstood sport that combines artistic and athletic expression. The film also examines the media storm that threatens the team's Olympic dreams when one of its members suffers devastating injuries and faces manslaughter charges as a result of a tragic car accident. Juxtaposing scenes that are intense and emotional, uplifting and mesmerizing, quirky and entertaining, Sync or Swim is the first-ever behind the scenes documentary about the making of the U.S. Olympic Synchronized Swimming Team.
