Robert Bruce Carter

I’m a writer, director, and actor in Chicago. I make things with absurd humor.


What I’m Working on Now

Submitting The Deadline, a short film that I wrote and directed in March 2016, to film festivals. 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.”

Want to collaborate or hear about new projects? I’m on Twitter and Instagram. Or you can email me.
