Director Biography - Robert Pelt

Contemporarily trained in filmmaking using online websites such as and I have not attended any film schools in my past nor see any in my future. I’ve learned to write, produce, direct, film, score, and edit my films by reading how to do it and just doing it. I buy every book I can find on filmmaking and read most of them.

Over the past four years I’ve filmed B-17 and B-24 bombers, and the men that flew them seventy years ago, “The Remaining Few”, a fitness program for older women, “Southern Women Staying Fit”, a TV series pilot ,“Ghost Pilots”, a promotional video about a theme park, “Kentucky Down Under Discovered”, a documentary, “Wilson County, Tennessee”, and a short film about the music industry in China, “Chengdu Rising”. I’m currently producing a feature film from a script I’ve written, “The Allotment”.

I'm looking forward to creating films that build bridges of understanding and create films that entertain and educate. Access to great people is the key to making a great film; and fate has been kind to me in finding those "right people".
