Rooney's Robert Schwartzman has been working relentlessly on music projects which include "Double Capricorn," SoloBob, and STARSYSTEM. He has also wrote and directed the film, “Dreamland,” which will be released on November 4th at the Fort Lauderdale Film Festival and November 11th in select locations. The film's main character is a struggling musician aspiring to open a piano bar but encounters difficulties along the way in achieving his dreams. The film features his family members, actor/brother, Jason Schwartzman, and actress/mother, Talia Shire. “Dreamland” has premiered throughout the United States in Independent Film Festivals such as the Tribeca Film Festival

Robert Schwartzman's hard work and endeavors contributed to the release of his music and film. He writes and records the songs for the Rooney albums and soundtracks for “Dreamland” and "Palo Alto." His innovative music is derived from his creative ideas. Robert Schwartzman records in his rustic and bohemian Los Angeles Studio, Beachwood Park. His song writing process begins with playing the idea on a piano or guitar.
