Director Biography - Frank Foster-Bolton

Frank Foster-Bolton is a filmmaker, propagandist, and award-winning bowler. Growing up, he’d obsess over abandoned buildings and old growth forests, making childhood films in those heady days when digital video was still stored on magnetic tape. With an undying passion for visceral stories, his work seeks to champion imperfections and raw emotions. This has led him toward both narrative and documentary projects that have a very human story at their core. Yet never forgetting those dark corners deep within derelict places, he continues building on his fascinations, focusing on the horror genre he so desperately loves.

Director Statement

We live in a world in which we consume anxiety, spoon-fed to us through every screen. A world where our “best self” is presented as a profile picture and a carefully edited video for strangers to judge. This is not a new observation and one can look to their parents’ generation and their parents’ generation to witness parallels.

Yet, the permeation of this anxiety into every second of our lives through the very devices we use to communicate… is growing and is hideous. The greatest tool in humanity’s history to communicate, the internet, seems instead to divide us. The pace of this incursion is exponential and its victims are legion. The results are violent.

WORRY NO MORE is an examination of this plight through the eyes of one of its victims.

In the end, we aren’t offering a solution. Neither are we meant to agree with the terrible things our protagonist does or says.

What we want is for you to watch Bailey in this short film and think, I would never do that. I could never be like that…
