I am the winner of more than 25 writing and directing awards and am one of only a handful of directors whose work has screened in the Congress of the United States. Silent Wings debuted on Capitol Hill on the day of its release in 2007 and became the catalyst for New York Congresswoman, Carolyn McCarthy's, House sponsored, Joint Resolution honoring America's WWII glider pilots.

I have been fortunate in my films to work with several Hollywood "name" collaborators. Hal Holbrook narrated Silent Wings, which featured Walter Cronkite and Andy Rooney. Civil War theatrical director, Ronald F. Maxwell, (Gettysburg, Gods & Generals) narrated my Lincoln and Lee at Antietam: The Cost of Freedom. Corey Reynolds (The Terminal, The Closer) narrated The Wereth Eleven and actor Dale Dye, Stephen Spielberg's Senior Military Advisor on Saving Private Ryan and Band of Brothers narrated the USS Franklin: Honor Restored, film in 2011.

In 2008 I began writing screenplays and both my first two feature film screenplays HAMILTON and BLOOD BETRAYAL reached the finals in two separate screen writing competitions. "Hamilton" was declared an "Official Finalist" in the 2011 Hollywood Screenplay Contest and "Blood Betrayal" reached the semi-finals in the 27th Write Movies International Writing Contest out of thousands of entries. Blood Betrayal has now been adapted to a Kindle novel.

    / 5 James Gillies for Job #72250 Rush On Boys: Hamilton at War Rob's background as a film maker and director made working with him very easy. He understands that while the words are his, an audio book is a collaborative effort. This made for a thoroughly satisfying end result. His is a work I am proud to have been involved in. I very much look forward to working with him again.
