Meet the Director of BLESSID

I first heard about Rob Fitz from New England’s top film makeup artist Tricia Heine. “I think Rob Fitz would be good for your film. I hire him for many of my films, and he’s also directed. I’m usually good connecting people to projects and I have a good feeling about Rob for this.”

Boy, was she right. I met Rob at a Panera in Andover. He didn’t dress for the occasion. He wore his trademark t-shirt and doo rag. My first impression was that he reminded me of a cross between a young Richard Dreyfuss and a Biker. Smart and friendly with a little bit of an edge. I learned quickly that Rob Fitz is a man comfortable in his own skin. He has a passion for indie film, particularly low budget fare. And people like him. He has an engaging personality and enough industry connections to fill up a Rolodex. “I make my salary on the big budget films. It’s films like Blessid where I put my sweat equity into making a great film and a great collaborative experience for the cast and crew.”
