Today, Women On The Move's founder, Leslie Harris, sits down with Director/Writer/Producer ROB HARDY!! ROB HARDY, Director/Writer/Producer RainForest Films recently celebrated the smashing success of TAKERS!! Rob Hardy broke into network television with his January 2008 directorial debut of the Emmy Award winning show ER. Soon after, Black Enterprise Magazine listed him among the Top 40 Entertainers under 40 (2008). Since recently wrapping production on Stomp the Yard: Homecoming for Sony Pictures, Hardy has returned to television with a directing stint on the CBS series Criminal Minds. Hardy began his career as a high school Senior, with the camcorder-shot movie G-Man. While pursuing a degree in Mechanical Engineering at Florida A & M University, he made the leap to film with the low-budget motion picture Chocolate City. The underground buzz on the project soon led to his controversial film Trois. Hardy not only directed and co-wrote the thriller, he was also instrumental in self-distributing the project to be the fastest Independent African American film to pass the $1million dollar mark. In 2003, after directing the critically acclaimed thriller Pandora's Box, he added the role of "Producer" to his credits by collaborating with business partner Will Packer, to produce Motives.He served as Executive Producer of Stomp The Yard, which held the #1 position at the box office for two weekends in January of 2007 and received the 2007 Movie of the Year Award from the BET Hip Hop awards. Afterwards came Motives: Retribution and Three Can Play that Game. His hard-earned success has garnered a 2006 “Best Screenplay” (Black Movie Awards) nomination for The Gospel. His company Rainforest Films, was listed as one of the Top 25 Money Makers in Entertainment. Most recently Hardy has continued his network episodic directing with stints on Criminal Minds and NBC’s Heroes.
