Raymond Victor Roberts (born November 23, 1994) is a Filipino-British filmmaker and YouTuber. He directed the short films Closure and Hedgehog and I. He also produces Good Food, a show about food culture for YouTube. Alongside food, he produces a variety of videos for YouTube including comedy, photography, cinema as well as more personal videos exploring subject matter like reconnecting with his Asian Filipino heritage as well as creative artist identity.[1][2][3]

Alongside his short fiction and documentary work, he has also directed music videos for Youth Killed It, Melanie Baker, and Lewis Fieldhouse.[4]

Roberts has been a panel speaker for Social in the City on representation and diversity online as well as photography. He has been alumni guest speaker at his previous film school, University for the Creative Arts in Farnham, Surrey.[5][6][7]

He also is a portrait photographer who has worked for the BBC, Vans and the BFI. In 2016, he took a spontaneous street portrait of Jeff Goldblum.[8]

Early life[edit]

Roberts was born in Salisbury, Wiltshire to a British father and Filipino mother who is native to the island of Cebu. He is a duel citizen of the Philippines and the UK. Growing up he spoke a mixture of Cebuano and English. He rapidly forgot Cebuano at the age of 4 after his mother was discouraged by his primary school teacher. In 2006 at the age of 12 and after being inspired by YouTube vloggers KevJumba and Charlie McDonnell, Roberts bought a webcam with £10 he received for his birthday to pursue making YouTube videos.[9]

He graduated with a Bachelor of Arts with Honours in Film Production and from the University for the Creative Arts in Farnham, Surrey in 2017. [7] He now is based in London, UK.
