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.”



We all become a what Are you.

I had a interesting thought, once I heard the sad news of the passing of James Gandolfini, I wanted to know just how fast we become the past tense in society.  So with an almost certainty of my expectation, I flipped open my mac and searched for him under wikipedia to see if his "is" had become a "was" and sure enough it was.  Or is, if we are speaking in the present moment and since we are, that brings me to my point...

We think we have time. 


In today's life expectancy standards, that rings closer to 31.   Frightening. So fucking frightening.

We think we have time.

Maybe, but maybe not. Gambling man, that's a bet the house always wins.  Eventually.

Always be climbing my beautiful people.
