ROBERT SHOWALTER started in 3D as a hobbyist until he found his first freelance job creating photo-realistic cars. Only then, did it occur to him that pursuing his passion of creating animated films might be more attainable than he thought. Those other potential carreer paths (Math teacher, mechanical engineer, professional basketball player) paled in comparison. Robert later attended Ringling College of Art and Design where he meet many of his future MoonBot buddies for the first time. In 2010 he interned at Walt Disney Animation as a lighter and completed his first animated short, "origins", the following year. The short earned him the Presidents Award as well as recognition from the National Board of Review. Robert considers MoonBot Studios a foster home of artistic-storytellers, and he fits right in.
RICK MEREKI made the three short films during his travels to 11 countries in 44 days are making the rounds on the internet today, like that featuring Andrew Lees, who walks the farthest hundred yards imaginable in the film "Move."
The film "Learn" shows the preternaturally handsome Lees being good at activities all over the world, including tangoing, rock climbing and wine tasting. In "Eat", a parade of spectacular dishes are placed before the viewer, who may break his hand trying to reach through the screen.
