Robert Lorenz

Robert Lorenz has worked alongside Clint Eastwood for more than a decade, collaborating with him on 10 films, including Mystic River, for which Lorenz was nominated for an Academy Award as producer. Lorenz executive produced the Academy Award winner Million Dollar Baby and Blood Work. In addition to Letters from Iwo Jima, Lorenz produced, along with Eastwood and Steven Spielberg, its companion film, Flags of Our Fathers.

Lorenz oversees all aspects of the films produced at Eastwood's company, Malpaso Productions, from development through production, post-production, marketing and distribution. Presently, he is also developing Rails and Ties, a film to be directed by Alison Eastwood. The Warner Independent Picture is set to begin filming in early 2007, with Lorenz as producer.

Lorenz attributes his successful working relationship with Clint Eastwood to a shared interest in compelling human dramas, and a similar, no-nonsense approach to filmmaking. He is proud to share in Malpaso's well-earned reputation as an efficient, well-oiled production machine.

Lorenz grew up in the suburbs of Chicago and moved to Los Angeles to begin his film career in 1989. He has more than 20 films to his credit as an assistant director and joined Eastwood in that capacity in 1994. He has been a member of the Directors Guild of America since 1993 and the Producers Guild of America since 2005. Lorenz met his wife, Melissa, while working together on The Bridges of Madison County. They live in the Los Angeles area with their two children.

TIM MOORE (Co-Producer) has overseen the physical production of Clint Eastwood's last four films -- Flags of Our Fathers, Letters from Iwo Jima, the Oscar-nominated Mystic River, and the Oscar-winning Million Dollar Baby. As he played a role in making Eastwood's legendary style of filmmaking possible-with few takes, coming in under budget, wrapping early-Moore has developed a first-rate reputation in his field.

In addition to Eastwood, Moore works closely with director Rowdy Herrington, collaborating on the films Jack's Back, Road House, and A Murder of Crows.

Moore also produced Animal Factory, starring Steve Buscemi for Franchise Pictures and co-produced White River Kid for producer Elie Samaha. He served as the production manager on the Marine Corps action thriller Semper Fi, for Dreamworks/NBC and produced the noted telefilm Stolen from the Heart, for CBS, with the legendary Leonard Hill.

His management skills were honed while at UCLA, where he met fraternity brother John Shepherd. Shepherd and Moore went on to produce four award-winning independent features, including The Climb, The Ride, Eye of the Storm and last year's ESPY nominee, Bobby Jones: Stroke of Genius.

He lives in Hermosa Beach with his wife, Bobbe, and their two dogs. They are actively engaged in the Amanda Foundation, which promotes the adoption of homeless pets nationwide.
