Director Biography – Hunter Fenoglio (BLIND RUNNERS)


Hunter always dreamed of taking over his dad’s engineering business… until his father sold the company during Hunter’s sophomore year of high school. Tasked with forging his own path, Hunter started to pay close attention to his hobbies and interests. His love for movies and passion for storytelling helped him decide to pursue filmmaking for the next two years of high school. This led him to USC’s prestigious School of Cinematic Arts where he is currently an undergraduate student studying Film and Television Production with an emphasis on directing and producing, and a minor in Business Finance from USC’s Marshall School of Business. Hunter will be graduating in the Spring of 2022 with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree.

Director Statement

I hope to continue making entertaining films that can also inspire audience members with universal subject matters. I’m particularly interested in telling stories with themes of heroism, sacrifice, and family – especially in the action, war, western, or thriller genres.
