Robert Seoane was born in Lima, Peru and came to Miami, Florida as an infant. He began his television career at the age of fifteen at local independent TV station, doing everything from camera for the local news to creating and editing TV promotional commercials.
At age 25, he made the move to Promotion Director for a fledgling Spanish language television, and ultimately handled the Promotion Department for the Univision Network.
Three years later, he went on his own, producing and directing TV commercials. But his lifelong ambition had always been making a movie, so, after writing four screenplays, he directed one of them, titled CHAT. CHAT is the story of a lonely guy who surfs the Internet in search of women, only to get involved in a murder plot.
Robert’s other major accomplishement was a documentary titled “Hispanic Heroes”, a three-hour documentary honoring the tens of thousands of Hispanic soldiers who fought American wars from 1776 to the present day. It aired on the History Channel, ultimately winning two regional Emmys for documentary and direction, adding to Robert’s other 11 Regional Emmy Awards.
Today, Robert Seoane is Creative Director of a local ad agency in Miami and is working on raising funds for his second film.
