Okay so several things have happened in the last several months since I posted. Here are some quick hits…
Halt And Catch Fire Season 2 premiered on AMC! I was an assistant editor again this season. I love the team and the show. Plus it has 94% on Rotten Tomatoes!
Scumbag, a short film I cut in 2014 directed by Luke Spears, had its premiere at the 2015 Newport Beach Film Festival and won Best Student Film at the Vail Film Festival. Luke recently graduated from Columbia University’s MFA Film Producing Program.
Overheads, another short film I cut in 2014, premiered online. You can view it below! Directed by the great Jesse Rosen.
And lastly, I had started up on HBO’s Lewis & Clark miniseries, but unfortunately production shut down due to “creative differences.” So now I’m back out and looking for good projects.
A quick note to update everyone on a “transmedia experience” I edited last month. The project is an interactive video that includes you in the story through emails, phone calls, and texts. It was a collaboration with fellow Emerson alums Landon Zakheim and Justin Gurnari the great crew at Fourth Wall Studios. It was a blast to work on and a lot of fun to experiment with the medium.
Check out this LA Times article written about the company.

If you want to check out the trailer for their other project Dirty Work, you can watch it below.
Maybe I’m just seeing things, but check out this Janelle Monae video! They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. Could it be there’s a distinct homage to Yeasayer’s Ambling Alp, directed by Radical Friend and edited by yours truly?!? You be the judge.
(Note: JUST AN EXCUSE to publish this awesome Janelle Monae video. You know what I can’t do? Dance like the people in this video. Although I wish I could.)
In light of some potential work as a cameraman and my impending purchase of the new awesome Canon Rebel T2i, I’ve decided to do a post about my previous camera work. Here is a sampling of some of my camera work over the years…

Great news! A short film I edited, “Neighbors Are Friends”, was picked up for international distribution by OUAT Media in Toronto! Congrats to Ariam and Skyler and all the amazing cast and crew for all their work. You can view the film at robgwilson.com/narrative, but I’ll repost it here…
UPDATE: The password to view this video is “robgwilson.com”. It was protected because the film hasn’t been released so it can’t be available for search. However, I can display it if you navigate your way here, to view my work.
This is an (unfinished) trailer for a short film called Prego that my friend Tim recommended me for. The project got put on hold, but I thought my version 1 was good enough to put up as an example of my abilities as a trailer editor.
