Robert Bruce Carter

I’m an award-winning writer, director, and actor in Chicago. I make things with absurd humor.


What I’m Working on Now

Traveling to film festivals to screen two shorts that I directed in 2016, The Deadline and Off Book. Pre-production for a comedic short that I’m directing in June. Writing two feature screenplays, with the goal of filming one in 2017. Curating the Chicago Film List, a newsletter about Chicago indie film news and events. Posting things about life and film that interest me on my blog. Sometimes I write satirical stuff like An Email Chain Between 4 People Depicted in Billy Joel’s “Piano Man.”

If you want to get in touch, I’m on Twitter and Instagram. Or you can email me.
