Coming from a background in photography, fine art, and graphic design, Robert Rossello first entered the world of film in 1999, joining with a colleague to form visual effects boutique Big Red Pixel. For six years he served as BRP’s lead creative, starting with the 2002 remake of Rollerball. He has since served as the visual effects supervisor for such films as 2003’s Basic and The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, and the Oscar-nominated Collateral in 2004, then Transporter 2 and Just Like Heaven in 2005. His graphic design skills came in handy for the main titles of the Bollywood epic Devdas in 2002, as well as Transporter 2.
A free agent since 2005, he continues to stretch creatively, contributing 2007 indie Where’s My Stuff”s production design and script in addition to its VFX. In February 2008 he wrote and directed his first short film, Continuum, and most recently directed and shot a moody promo clip for Bay Area chanteuse Emma Ray.
