Rob VanAlkemade began his career as, variously, a film director, producer, cinematographer, sound recordist, and editor in 1995. His documentary short "Preacher with an Unknown God", about performance artist and political activist Reverend Billy and his Stop Shopping Gospel Choir, won a Sundance Film Festival Jury Award in 2006 and led to a 2007 documentary feature What Would Jesus Buy?, about the group's month-long anti-consumerism tour across the United States.
After living in New York for many years, VanAlkemade currently resides in Los Angeles where he works as a network showrunner / executive producer with Paradigm, and an independent documentary director, cinematographer and editor.
