143: Robert L. Mickles – Making “Off-Time” Happen

On this episode, you will hear from Robert L. Mickles, the Co-Founder/Director/Editor of 360 Digital Studios.  Rob is a filmmaker based out of Croydon, Pennsylvania, who has been doing full service production studio work, with a knack for collaboration, since before attending college.  Video production takes Rob all over the world. He typically serves the following areas: Philadelphia, NYC/NJ, DMV area (DE/MD/VA/D.C), Texas, California, Las Vegas and Florida. 

His new film, “Off-Time,” is a passion project that has taken almost a decade to complete.  He and his business partner, Brian, have self-funded most of the project, all while keeping up with client work.
