Robert Rodriguez is a film director, screenwriter, producer, cinematographer, editor and musician.

While a student at the University of Texas at Austin in 1991, Robert Rodriguez wrote the script to his first feature film, El Mariachi, which went on to win the coveted Audience Award at the 1993 Sundance Film Festival, and became the lowest budget movie ever released by a major studio. Rodriguez wrote about these experiences in Rebel Without a Crew, a perennial guide for the independent filmmaker.

Rodriguez went on to write, produce, direct and edit a series of successful films including Desperado, From Dusk Till Dawn, The Faculty, the Spy Kids franchise, Once Upon a Time in Mexico, Frank Miller’s Sin City, The Adventures of Sharkboy and Lavagirl in 3D, Grindhouse, Machete and Sin City 2: A Dame To Kill For, and embarked on a collaboration with iconic film director James Cameron on the film adaptation of Alita: Battle Angel which Cameron is producing alongside Rodriguez directing.

In 2000, Rodriguez founded Troublemaker Studios, an Austin, Texas based production facility of which he is co-owner and president. The studio includes a world-renowned visual effects house, music and publishing arms and has played a primary role in making Austin a vibrant filmmaking hub.

In 2017, Rodriguez, alongside his sons Racer and Rebel, formed Double R Productions, a development and production company with capabilities to produce media projects across film, television, gaming, and interactive platforms. In addition to Red 11, Double R produced a state of the art VR live-action short called the The Limit as well as as a new feature film, We Can Be Heroes, in partnership with Netflix. We Can Be Heroes has become one of Netflix’s most popular films of all time.

He recently directed the Lady Gaga/Ariana Grande video "Rain on Me," and an episode of The Mandalorian which led to him currently producing the new Star Wars series The Book of Boba Fett.

Eman Askar

A multipotentialite with the mission to inspire. Eman’s song on Instagram ”Story of Palestine" was watched over 11M times.

For 11 years, Eman has been professionally helping entities tell their stories, spread their messages, and communicate complicated information in creative, simple and entertaining ways.

It all started with her 5 year long job as a science communicator with Nutty Scientists where she would create and perform shows for children that help them understand scientific concepts while having fun! Then, for the following 5 years, Eman gained experience in the media industry when she worked in the creative team of Axeer studio and Giraffics. There, she was able to utilize her creative storytelling talents in a more corporate/ commercial context; writing creative concepts for commercial ads and scripts for professional infographic videos. She also learned how to create impact with stories while creating content in several awareness campaigns for UNICEF, UN Women, CARE, and more.

In the second half of 2020, Eman was ready to unleash more of her creative energy and so, she decided to continue her professional content creation work on freelance basis to have enough time to produce content for her own channel. There, she was able to explore more content creation methods in which she can add value, such as singing/songwriting, acting, and making short energetic videos.

Eman’s mission is to inspire individuals to become the best versions of themselves and eventually help in building a healthier community that is able to work together for a better future. First, her plan was to simply tell inspiring stories, spread motivational messages and explain game changing topics, all through her songs and videos. Then, one of her songs, “The story of Palestine”, went viral on an international level which gave her the opportunity of a bigger and more diverse audience. This motivated her into adding “bridging cultural gaps and building international friendships” to her list of “to do’s”. Eman’s long term plan for achieving this is, through hosting workshops and retreats (online and offline) that can help build closer friendships for her audience with her and one another.

On a personal level, despite looking young, Eman is actually a mom of two and she shares this part of her life in her content as well.
