Director Biography – Liam LoPinto (FRENCH FRY)

Ce0470e0c9 headshot

Liam LoPinto is a filmmaker currently based in Valencia, California, studying Character Animation at the California Institute of the Arts. He previously graduated from NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts UGFTV Program.

Director Statement

I made this film as both a gentle parody of French Cinema and an ode to some of my favorite comedies growing up: the works of Mel Brooks, Spongebob Squarepants, and Monty Python. I couldn’t have made this without being inspired by those works or the help of my friends, family, and faculty!

“A Dog’s Story” is an absurdist short that tells the tragi-comic tale of an old dog who contemplates his bleak future after being laid off from his security job. The Dog has made a slide presentation of his current predicament and how he got here — an all-too-frequent story that many of us have also experienced in this new competitive economy where jobs are being replaced by automation and being too old can leave you marginalized.
