Rob Wadleigh

Rob WadleigH

director/producer

Filmmaker extraordinaire, animator, funk pioneer, “the vision”. Rob got his first break while working in Austin, TX, where he crafted eccentric music videos for musical groups such as Whiskey Shivers and Wild Child. He has since worked on many more music videos, assorted video campaigns and he has even, as the saying goes, gone viral.


After relocating to Los Angeles, Rob formed Duel Citizen, a powerhouse, decentralized collective of glittering creatives with only one priority: execute fantastic ideas under one digital roof.

Ben bloom

video editor

As a head-honcho video editor based out of Los Angeles, Benjamin has spent the better half of a decade working on projects for a laundry list of notable clients.

Alan lopez 

copyeditor/writer

A self-described "polymath", Alan learned big, fancy words like that while studying the Psychology of Creativity at Saybrook University. Since, he’s moved on from co-authoring research projects towards a more noble cause: writing deconstructive, pop-art articles about Super Mario Bros. His words have been published on lots of popular gaming sites, including Kotaku, Polygon, and Nintendo Life, the latter which where he serves as a contributing writer. He is also the managerial editor at HireAHelper.com, a nationwide, moving labor marketplace.

swiss-army engineer/designer/coder

Trip has engineered an electric car from scratch, a smartwatch at Olio, and created a fully modular, 3D LED display system. Impressed? Sure, he may have dual Engineering and Physics degrees from MIT and a Master’s in Mechanical Engineering from Stanford, but we only brought him along because he’s bursting at the britches with dance grooves.
