"I think that logo probably cost more than my entire movie"
Describing the Columbia Pictures Vanity Plate in the commentary to El Mariachi

Describe Robert Rodriguez here.

Easy. He's that hard-edged filmmaker who directed the El Mariachi trilogy, Machete, From Dusk Till Dawn, Sin City and half of Grindhouse.

No, wait! He's that family-friendly guy who gave us the Spy Kids tetralogy, The Adventures of Sharkboy and Lavagirl, and Shorts.

Whoever he is, he does most of the work on his films, directing, screenwriting, editing, composing, production designing and just about everything else aside from being the actual cameraman. No, wait, he does that too. He's also very proud to be Mexican, as most of his movies can attest.

His diaries from the shooting of El Mariachi were published as Rebel Without A Crew, a book which is absolute required reading for all aspiring indie/low budget filmmakers.

He and fellow director Quentin Tarantino have worked together on a couple of each other's projects, their biggest collaboration being Grindhouse.

See also Hybride Technologies, the VFX firm that Rodriguez works with in most of his films.
