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.”



Autumn Leaves…

Or better yet it comes.  Rolling in like a GOD damn tsunami.  Prepared or not.  Seasons do change.  Forgive me Lord for taking your namesake in vain, but these veins running the metropolis of my biological city carries the reasons why I do and do not want those Fall leaves to fall.  The reasons seem to never truly change cause change is the hardest thing in the world.  Don't make a promise to do such if you know you are still holding on, trying not to autumn off.  

What the fuck are you holding onto though is the ponderment while I'm wondering, looking at you questioning the laws that govern the direction that you are moving in.  Thinking in. Or not.  Systematically stagnant.  

Montepulciano minded.  

Stunted by blunting.  

Renewed visions by noose asphyxiation.  Why does it take damn near dying to alter missed-conceptions? On the eve's eve of my born date, it's a cool 68 degrees in the NYC and I'm a bit layered up.  Entering GOD's hour, ready to shed these extra layers if need be.  Feel me?

Smile Harder.
