Recommended interview on The Onion AV site:
Rodriguez is an enthusiastic pioneer in theshooting of films with high definition progressive scan digital cameras on digital film. In response to the old film axiom: "Creative people aren't technical; technical people aren't creative. They always need each other, and they're always on opposite sides of the room." Rodriguez said: "That's why nothing gets done. I've abandoned film forever. You can't go back. It's like trying to go back to vinyl after you've got recordable DVD.".

Robert Rodriguez was born and raised in San Antonio, Texas, USA ~ 20 June 1968. At a very young age he showed an interest in cartooning and filmmaking and devoted all his time to this developing fascination. Finally it resulted for him in making real movies, and just first of them - Mariachi, El (1992) - made him the legend of independent ultra-low budget filmmaking. His further career is a sign for young filmmakers that even the most wild dream may come true if you are brave enough to follow your own path. Since then Robert has written, directed, and/or produced up to 10 cool movies, such as Desperado (1995), From Dusk Till Dawn (1996), Faculty, The (1998) and Spy Kids (2001).
