Bio

Writer/Director Rob Fitl hails from Bracebridge Ontario, in the heart of Muskoka. He completed his B.A.H. from Queen's University in Film Studies. While in school, he started production on a low-budget feature called Death of Indie Rock (2008) about a small-town band moving to the big city. The film was an official selection of both the Kingston Canadian Film Festival and the touring DIY Film Festival. After school, Rob joined an comedy troupe in Muskoka called Human Outreach Program. The group produced approximately fifty videos and were featured in The Muskoka Comedy Festival for 2009. "I'll Give You Guys a Minute" is Rob Fitl's first short since. Shot in Toronto's dreamy Calico Cafe, the short was made on a shoestring budget with the help of Toronto's independent film and theatre community.

    The film is an interesting piece of history that I did not know anything about. However, I had a hard time watching for the same reasons I have trouble watching civil war documentaries or serials on jazz. That still-image effect. Whenever a documentary is mostly in still shots, I tune out. It is not to say that the images are not well done, but without any interviews or more... read
