Robert Poissant is the Video Associate at 1871. After graduating from Tribeca Flashpoint Media Arts Academy in Chicago, Robert worked as a freelance videographer and editor for years, where he gained experience on a variety of productions from live events to music videos, corporate interviews, product promos, and more.
His skill set includes cinematography, editing, producing, gaffing, audio recording, motion graphics, and photography. Robert believes that video is a powerful medium that makes real stories relatable and allows us to follow in the steps of a subject’s journey right along with them. He also regards video as an avenue to gain insight about people, places, things, the present and the past, or even to help us learn more about ourselves. In his free time, Robert enjoys going to local concerts and sporting events with his wife Vivian, playing at Montrose beach with his two dogs, Sunday & Gidget, and relaxing at home watching the latest Netflix shows.
