May 16 Workshop

From Script To Screen

Film as a Medium for Storytelling

Local filmmaker Rob Carter discusses his new foray into film making.

Canyon, Texas, native Rob Carter began his real estate career in the 1970s at the age of 21. With the help of two of his friends, Rob built his first five homes. Over the years, he's worked with various developers in residential developments and road building. When interest rates soared in the mid and late 80's, he moved to estate planning, selling products to individuals looking to grow and preserve their estates.

In the mid 1990s, Rob started buying land between Canyon and Amarillo. Rob has completed over five residential developments between Amarillo and Canyon since 1998.

After a long career in real estate, Rob felt he should get into the movie making business. The digital revolution made film making more cost effective, enabling Rob to realize his dream.  He has produced a number of films over the last five years. Rob hopes to hang up his real estate hat and become a full time movie producer.

The most recent movie Rob worked on is Revelation Road Three. His friend Bradley Dorsey produced the movie, which was shot in January of 2013. The movie was distributed by Pure Flix Entertainment out of Arizona. Pure Flix Entertainment movies are on Netflx. For a listing of their movies, do a Netflix search for Pure Flix Entertainment.
