Small Beginnings: Robin Williams

    For today’s episode of Small Beginnings and as a celebration of finishing Principle Photography on The Out of the Woods Project with The Initiative Production Company, we want to look at one of the great acting talents of our time that will be remembered for generations: Robin Williams

    Robin McLaurin Williams was born in Chicago, Illinois in 1951. He soon found a likeable sense of humor and overcame his shyness in high school when he joined a drama group. At graduation he was voted “funniest” and “Most Likely Not to succeed” by his co-graduates. Williams went on to pursue acting after a short attempt of studying political science.

    The depth of his talent was soon discovered by professors and called “Human Dynamo” and “Genius” due to his immense talent and energy. Williams found some release of energy in Stand Up Comedy after adding personal struggles into his performances and calling it “cheaper than therapy”. His career in television, film and even theater followed and brought him many awards and recognitions.

    Robin Williams surely inspired more than one generation and will be dearly missed. We wish his family all the best and are thankful for the joy and hope he brought the world by his talent.

    No matter what people tell you, words and ideas can change the world.
    – Robin Williams
