Dave Andrae was born in Milwaukee, Wisconsin on the Autumnal Equinox of 1979. He started making movies at a young age, though to date the filmmaker would only endorse a small fraction of his output, citing most of his early works as mere learning experiences. (Rest assured, only the truly good films will find their way to this Vimeo page.)
Andrae holds a BFA in Film from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, but truth be told he considers himself an autodidact.
His humorous short, SELF-IMPORTANT EMPIRICAL FILM #3, WITH VOICE-OVER, played at several fine festivals, earned Andrae an invitation to the 2006 Berlinale Talent Campus, and won the award for "Best Experimental Film" at the 8th Annual Boston Underground Film Festival.
His 2010 experimental narrative, ROBERT ON HIS LUNCH BREAK, has had a harder time finding an audience, but according to Andrae it's a superior work.
Though a filmmaker first and foremost, Andrae has occasionally acted in other people's efforts, most notably as the lead in John Koch's debut feature, JE NE SAIS QUOI, and as part of the ensemble cast in Jennifer Montgomery's THREADS OF BELONGING.
He is currently at work on a new film in sunny Florida.
