Director Biography - Robb Rokk

Writer and director, Robb Rokk (aka Robb Smith) is a filmmaker and visual artist who, in 2016, founded the not-for-profit, DeSoto Arts Institute, in Southaven, Mississippi, to pass along his passion for high quality, thought-provoking and redemptive story-telling to the younger and less experienced. He teaches weekly classes in acting and all aspects of filmmaking to students of all ages. Robb has produced film, music videos, web design, commercials, and corporate videos for over 25 years featuring creative motion graphics, invisible VFX, and cinematic camera work, as well as subtle messages.

Robb and DAI’s mission is to provide exposure, education, and hands-on experience in the arts to anyone and everyone interested. Working from DAI Studios, Robb and DAI’s last four films have made the top ten cut in the Memphis Film Prize with 2018’s Outside Arcadia screening and winning awards in more than 30 festivals around the world.

Director Statement

I am very pleased to share The Book of Knots with you. This film was made by students and volunteer filmmakers who attend our 501c3 not-for-profit DeSoto Arts Institute in northwest Mississippi where we teach filmmaking, writing, acting, music production, and more.

The Book of Knots is a sweet story about a young scout working hard to keep his family together when he feels something is amiss.
