Dmitri Frolov was born in Leningrad in 1966. He graduated from The Institute of Film & Television in 1990. He worked at LENFILM Studios and then for the STV film company as a cameraman, in which capacity he has worked with many independent filmmakers. He began to shoot his own films before the start of perestroika, in the early 1980s. He is one of the leaders of russian movievanguard in postperestroika age. He makes esthetic experiments connecting with return to dumb cinema on new level of movielanguage.
His films he shoots exclusively on film company "Svema". Even despite the fact that the film material, said the factory was left far in the Soviet past, and the film is not released, he revives the footage, while continuing to be faithful to the brand selected more child. When asked why, he replied that only "Svema" because of its unpredictability and non-uniformity of the emulsion, is the living material, which is able to convey the thrill of the character of life and even the seemingly inanimate object.
