Robert Anderson

What is your name and your current occupation?

I am Robert Anderson. My current occupation is Producer. I can’t tell you where and on what as I will have to shoot you all.

What are some of the crazier jobs you had before getting into animation?
Sadly I have only a few jobs that are outside of the film business. I started working on live action films at the age of 16. I did work at McDonald’s for a time and I am a firm believer that this job alone prepared me for the world of Project Management. Try doing the Quarter Pounder counter for a bus load of senior citizens and you will understand.

What are some of your favorite projects you’re proud to have been a part of?
I am proud of many but the ones that stick out the most are Untalkative bunny & Three Delivery. I was Line Producer on the first and Producer on the second.

But right out of art school I was a construction laborer for a few years, short-order cook, worked in a retail and also ran lights and the sound board for a couple of local, hometown bands on the weekends. I did have a brush with the world of film production when I was an Associate Producer, sound man, 2nd unit photographer, set builder and driver for a small live-action company.

What are some of your favorite projects you’re proud to have been a part of?
Right off the bat, my first gig in the business was on “The Simpson’s” and I was lucky enough at that time to have been at Film Roman when Phil Roman still ran the place and it was a place where you had opportunity to learn, advance and grow, especially on that show. I came on 5th Season in 1993 with NO actual animation production experience and eventually worked my way up through the ranks of being able to direct my first episode and from that point I was offered to direct fulltime on “King Of The Hill”, also being produced at Film Roman. So my time on “The Simpson’s” will always hold a special place in Continue…
