About

Professor Bob

TEACHING – One of the great benefits of knowing your field well is that it gives you the opportunity to share it with others. I come from a long line of teachers and educators and I'm thrilled that I can continue in this tradition. What I like best is when a student takes what I have offered, processes it, and makes it his or her own. In this way it comes full-circle and the teacher becomes the student.

The Left-Coast

HOLLYWOOD – The golden mecca of American filmmaking...I journeyed to Southern California in the summer of 1995 with little more than a 'suitcase full of dreams,' as they say. What I found was a beautiful, dynamic, dangerous place full of diversity, kinetic energy and talent. I jumped into the deep end and discovered I could not only keep up, but had my own set of significant abilities and sensibilities to bring into play. I've since left the Golden State but have many fond memories, close friends and wonderful experiences to go back to.

Reverse Immigration

AMSTERDAM – Having the good fortune of visiting some of Europe's greatest cities, The Netherlands' capital is where I call home. Every time I came I found the Dutch people so friendly and content...and as I dug deeper found that it all stemmed from a significant and strong social contract which I wanted to be a part of. When I make someone else's life better, my life is better. It's as simple as that!

A Working Man

EXPERIENCE – It's a male, American, popular notion that a man's work is what defines him. And if I look though this lens I see a wonderful assortment of challenges and accomplishments throughout the years. Some failures, but mostly good, honest, satisfying work completed to the best of my abilities. And upon further reflection, I see that in the end it is always about relationships...with oneself, with others. Business comes and goes but it is these strong bounds and shared experiences that are what defines us.

That Smarts

EDUCATION – As a younger person I never really enjoyed formal education and that sentiment remains to this day. Maybe it's my independent spirit, perpetual immaturity or stubbornness? More likely it is challenge to what 'I already know' or think that I do. With all of this said, I haven't regretted a single day of it! An education is really just a portal or door - giving you access to the secret garden hidden behind. So if you spend all of your time at the threshold you'll never really appreciate or experience the vast rolling hills of knowledge that await you.

It all started late on a January evening in '62...

BACKSTORY – In screenwriting I learned that 'if you knew the beginning' of the story, you 'knew the end' and if you knew the end, you 'knew the middle.' My childhood was a wonderful playground full of enchantment, challenge and fun. I have no greater blessing in this world than to be born into the Yothers clan. Was it always peaches and cream? No, of course. We had our trials and trauma along the way, like every family, but my parents always had a kind-hearted and optiomistic approach to everything that came our way. A lesson I learned very early, hold with me and will carry until the end. Thank you Duane, Patricia, Laura, David and Tracy Yothers, from the bottom of my heart.

Loire sur Cher

FRANCE – Living in the Loire Valley was a life changing experience. Not only did it allow me the time and space to strip off the 'waxy build up' of Los Angeles, but showed me a different approach to life. Pontlevoy is a tiny village off the beaten path and I think I consumed more wine in the short time I was there, than in my entire life combined. NOT IN AN EFFORT TO GET DRUNK - rather, the appreciation of fine wine to the French is a national pride. You can literally taste the region, grapes, soil, sunlight and rain in each sip and it is a wonderful celebration of life itself - 'a la vôtre santé' !

Fine. Art.

ACTION! – For an artist the balance between commerce and creation is as old as civilization itself. Filmmaking is particularly challenging as it is one of the most expensive 'toy train sets' in the world. The costs and scope often demand the participation of other people...business people. Already at odds and more often than not correct in their predictions about the financial viability of any given project they are as necessary as a camera itself. Still, if every motion picture depended on the blessings of its 'bean counters,' we'd still be painting in caves. Luckily, peppered across the globe are individuals who LOVE telling stories and will stop at nothing to get it done. I count myself in this group and seek to reveal truth through that mysterious thing that happens between the creators, the film itself and the audience.
