Director: ForestForestForestForest "Bobby" Hartman Jr.

I'm a filmmaker and animator, born in Indiana, and spent several years in NY and finally deciding to be local to NC. I learned that I wanted to spend every day of my life doing anything art related from a young age. That, along with a childhood saturated by cartoons and movies, made me realize that I wanted to make my own. Sometime upon arrival to eastern North Carolina, I decided to major in film studies and production at the University of North Carolina in Wilmington. Since graduation, I have worked with many teams and clients and I'm currently working freelance making countless miscellaneous projects. In my free time, I am pursuing my own films and series.


With everything I make, I journey not to be understood, but to understand the journey.
