About the Director: Rob Waters
Rob Waters is a long-time friend of the Ocean City Film Festival, having shown his award-winning short film “Pietas” in the 2018 film festival. Rob has been telling stories most of his life. Wilmington native started making films when he was 10, shooting with a friend’s camcorder and editing on a dual VHS player. When the digital media revolution made equipment and post-production more affordable, Waters took a leap, and in 2010 he made his first “real” short. A local festival accepted it and “since then, I’ve been hooked on creating short films.” As much as he loved filmmaking, Waters had never considered doing it for a living. But as his works were screened more frequently, people started asking him to make films for their businesses. His trajectory toward professional filmmaking took another leap when Waters won a 2014 national short film contest. After the screening, a competition judge told him he was meant to be a filmmaker and do it full-time. That advice gave Waters “the push I needed,” and so he created a successful Sussex-county production company. W Films is based in Lewes, where he lives and works with a group of like-minded artists and technicians. A long way from telling tales in his back yard, Waters is now taking his own journey through his films.
