Robb (S.R.) Bindler is a director who finds humor, levity, and poignancy in everyday subjects. His eye for natural detail and his comedic instincts elevate his commercial work, and were the cornerstones of his critically lauded film debut, Hands on a Hardbody. The documentary feature, which recorded an endurance contest in Texas that offered a Nissan Hardbody Truck as the prize,
was a festival hit around the country and won the AFI Audience Award for Best Documentary.
Robb’s iconic story has since been adapted for the stage and opened on Broadway March 2013 with a score from Amanda Green and Phish's Trey Anastasio and a story by Pulitzer Prize winner Douglas Wright.
A native of Longview, Texas, Robb attended New York University's Tisch School of the Arts' Film program. He has worked with top advertising agencies including Wieden & Kennedy, BBDO, DDB, Grey, McCann, Arnold, and TBWA/Chiat Day. His work has won ADDYs, Andys, and has been honored by the AICP/MoMA Show.
