Robert Poole's initial interest in directing stemmed from his desire to be in control of the roles he would play in his high school acting class. Now, the Nashville, Tennessee native is an up and coming talent.
A recent graduate of Columbia University's MFA Film program, Poole has directed a wide range of work including stage plays, documentaries, music videos, and short films. His shorts have played in festivals throughout the country and his thesis, "Brother's Keeper" landed him one of the two spots in the 2012 fall fellowship program sponsored by Bad Robot. He is currently developing a feature-length film loosely based on his experiences in Nashville.
