Director Biography - Fritz Frauendorf

I'm a student filmmaker living in LA trying to make my voice heard. I hold brief experience of creating a couple award winning short films, but I have a long way to go. At the moment, I am still attending the New York Film Academy in Burbank pursuing my BFA in Filmmaking.
This film was created as a final thesis for Matthew Ruf's (writer/actor) MFA Acting program.

Director Statement

he110 is a short film commentary on the current socio-digital landscape and its effects on the human condition. Our introverted, romantic lead--James--is searching for lasting, meaningful connections within the superficial world of texting and online profiles around him.

I directed this film with my friend, Matthew Ruf, who wrote the script, to get our story about how connections are lost to superficial digital and online communication.
We believe this is becoming a bigger and bigger issue that dissociates us from ourselves every day, and we wanted to use both humour and drama, as well as a slight futuristic twist, to get our message out there.
