When we discovered a one of a kind, unique story like Fritz....we were compelled to document it. Fritz, a 70 year-old hard-of-hearing painter went to NYC in 1977 to be a professional artist. He never quite made it. He now works as a machinist, struggling to get out of a rut after the death of his girlfriend Darlene. We spent two years documenting his progress, filming his stories and interviewing people in the art world on what it means to "make it."
We shots thousands of photogrpahs and hundreds of hours of footage. We carefully edited our project into a comprehensive web series, feature film, podcast and robust website with an online store for the artist's works. Fritz is back and better than ever.
