VP Head of Physical Production
It is believed that Pablo Picasso once said, “Inspiration exists, but it has to find you working”. This same sentiment is echoed by celebrity creative Chuck Close, albeit in a less ‘romantic’ way, when he said, “Inspiration is for amateurs, the rest of us show up and get to work.”
This same philosophy seems to run in the very veins of Executive Producer and Nascal Media Founder, Ron Robinson. From as early as 1997 Ron began making waves with artists like JA Rule and Ashanti, working his way onto the music scene as a talented manager. But, it was when he transitioned to film and TV that his career really took orbit.
Currently serving as the VP Head of Physical Production and Executive Producer at Swirl Films, Ron Robinson oversees and leads the charge of the creative process, from conception to production execution. Having worked with Swirl founder and CEO Eric Tomosunas for his first producing opportunity back in 2008, Robinson is no stranger to the industry.
His film portfolio includes Deuces (starring Lance Gross, Lorenz Tate and Megan Good), When Love Kills” (marking Tasha Smith’s director debut), Brotherly Love (starring the phenomenal KeKe Palmer and Macy Gray) and runaway fan favorites like BET Anthology series Tales and Bounce TV’s #1 cable series Saints & Sinners. What is also worth noting, is while the pandemic caused others to slow down, Ron actually did more than most, producing over 18 Film, TV series and music inspired projects, between 2020 and 2022. It’s safe to say, that anyone that partners with this industry veteran and New York native must also share his almost superhuman work ethic and commitment to excellence regardless of the budget.
His content company, Nascal Media, and his continued work with Swirl Films, will no doubt prove exactly that, as he has proven himself, that talent, grit a healthy relationship with failure and good old fashioned hard work will get you in the spotlight faster and longer than simply a few dollars more. Robinson’s vision is to lead Swirl further into the creative space, by shifting its focus around developing and curating their own content. Often described as a visionary, he is the type of leader capable of giving strategic counsel and direction, while cultivating a creative working environment among his team members.
For Ron, it’s about the work, and in an industry of way too many of fakers, talkers and polished pretenders, Ron Robinson stands out as the real deal, unfiltered and ready to take over with anyone whose up to the task.
