Ross has always had an interest in art and has an eye for spatial relations and proportions.  His subject matter is often bold and he will create a piece based on what moves him, regardless of its political or controversial content.  Ross's primary interests are currently videography and editing.  His current short films have a wide range in themes:
America Drawn:   Gun violence in urban America
A Lost Love:  Introspective view on love
Light Dance:   Solo dance performance in the dark
Static Ball:   Humorous focus on a ball with a mind of its own
A variety of comedy and action sequences

Ross's interests expanded from his initial interest in sketching to making linocuts to his current passion for film. (Webmaster's note:  It was one of Ross's quick sketches of an elaborate sword, overlaid on  a waning saturn-like planet which inspired Art from the Soul to begin exploring astronomical/space art, not the famous Dave Archer, who we both admire, as some have thought.)

To view one or more of Ross's films at no cost, please send a blank DVD disk with a SASE to Ross Rodriguez at the address listed on the contact page.

Ross's outside interests are snowboarding, watching movies and introducing others to a variety of film genre, producers, directors and cinematography.
