My name is Robert Kalm. Friends call me Bob. I write, produce, and teach interactive media. I like projects that are small enough to think big.
That’s me back in the nineties directing a makeshift company of actors in the shallow end of the then abandoned McCarren Park Pool in Greenpoint, Brooklyn.
When the City of New York couldn’t afford a television studio with a blue screen, I suggested we improvise with one of their cherry pickers and an empty, monochrome tub floor. We got an Emmy nomination.
NYU taught me filmmaking is editing. Just as I choose the limits of the camera frame and the boundaries of each scene, I can use the limitations of my resources or budget.
After two decades of producing, I still seek out experiments. If you have a creative problem to solve, and want to see your limits as possibilities, contact me below.
