Rodriguez in 2007

Robert Anthony Rodríguez is an American film director, film producer, writer, composer, cinematographer and film editor. He has contributed to many projects as a combination of the six. Less commonly, Rodriguez has also worked as a second unit director, animator and a visual effects supervisor.

Despite being rejected from the University of Texas' film school due to poor academic promise of the Arts, Robert Rodriguez created his first 16mm short film Bedhead which opened many doors for him. Rodriguez then created his first feature-length film El Mariachi which was picked up by Columbia Pictures. After directing the television film Roadracers, Rodriguez continued work in Hollywood.

El Mariachi, was the first of Rodriguez Mexico Trilogy that included Desperado and Once Upon a Time in Mexico. Rodriguez continued working on several other film series including the crime-horror film hybrid From Dusk Till Dawn and the family-oriented adventure film series Spy Kids. Rodriguez has also collaborated with film director Quentin Tarantino on various projects including Four Rooms, From Dusk Till Dawn, Kill Bill: Volume 2, Sin City and Grindhouse.
