Robert Lee Zemeckis Net Worth:
Robert Lee Zemeckis Net Worth:Robert Lee Zemeckis (born May 14, 1952) is an American director, producer, and screenwriter. Zemeckis first came to public attention in the 1980s as the director and creator of the science fiction comedy Back to the Future film series, as well as the Academy Award-winning live-action/animated family comedy Who Framed Roger Rabbit (1988), though in the 1990s he diversified into more dramatic fare, including 1994's Forrest Gump, for which he won an Academy Award for Best Director.His films are characterized by an interest in state-of-the-art special effects, including the early use of the insertion of computer graphics into live-action footage in Back to the Future Part II (1989) and the pioneering performance capture techniques seen in The Polar Express (2004), Beowulf (2007) and A Christmas Carol (2009). Though Zemeckis has often been pigeonholed as a director interested only in effects, his work has been defended by several critics, including David Thomson, who wrote that "No other contemporary director has used special effects to more dramatic and narrative purpose."As of April 2014, Zemeckis was working on his next movie, entitled The Walk, a biographical film based on the life of French high-wire professional Philippe Petit, the man who tight rope walked between the World Trade Center towers in 1974.
