Robert N. Zagone is an independent filmmaker and television director who is best known for his independent feature films Read You Like a Book (starring Karen Black, Tony Amendola and Danny Glover) and The Stand-In (starring Danny Glover). He is also well known for the iconic guerilla-style documentary Drugs in the Tenderloin, as well as his many forays into the musical culture of San Francisco, including Go Ride the Music, featuring Jefferson Airplane and Quicksilver Messenger Service; A Night at the Family Dog, featuring the Grateful Dead, Santana, and Jefferson Airplane; Big Brother and the Holding Company with Janis Joplin; and the infamous Bob Dylan Press Conference. Zagone was one of the first filmmakers to cover the cultural explosion of the 1960s in the San Francisco Bay Area, as well as one of the first directors to make music videos. In addition, he was one of the first directors to implement an open policy of diversity for all of his film projects, for both cast and crew.

Zagone has been a guest lecturer at the California College of the Arts (where one of his students was Wayne Wang), and has been asked to speak at classes at DeAnza College, San Francisco Art Institute, and San Francisco State. He has also conducted workshops at Video Expo, Film Arts Foundation, and The Bay Area Video Coalition. He is the recipient of three Emmys from the San Francisco chapter of the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences, and is a member of the Directors Guild of America.

Many of the films and programs Zagone directed have been uploaded to YouTube, including the Bob Dylan Press Conference, Credence Clearwater Revival's music video for "Sweet Hitchhiker," and The Human Be-In.
