John Anthony

Actor. Filmmaker. Alien

Wade Wofford, Director, Writer and Producer of the upcoming feature “The Answer”

“Much like the adage that "you make a film three times: writing the script, shooting it, and editing," I find that working with actors is very similar; you work with them in a very different way in all three parts of the filmmaking process.  Most actors, in my experience, do not shine across all three...  John Anthony, on the other hand, proves a pleasure through each stage of the process. His intentness on understanding relationships and willingness to build character history enriches beyond the script in preproduction. During production, his sense of humor, willingness to work his ass off, and "turn it on" on demand were assets to shooting swiftly and efficiently. And during post, his consistency and strong choices shine through; movements made on specific lines from wide to close make the editor's task able to focus on quality rather than tedious technicalities. A true pro, and craftsman at his art.”



Further from flesh..

The ancients celebrated death as if the greatest gift in life.  We do everything possible to stay in this place which is not our own.  We are more celestial than terrestrial.  We have always contained something else.  A bit extra.  

That couldn't be explained by written text, so we sang.  Lifted voices into sounds only decipherable by comparing the howls of owls and water moving across grains of sand.  

More majestic than purple hilled mountain peaks, a peek into the past blinds most and forces the listening to cease their speech.  

We lose the purpose of our verbs in our exaggerated verbage.  This touch is enough.
