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.”



Shade, Salty air and Sulfites..

You ever just wake up in a mood, like fuck all ya'll.

That would be the easiest way to express those feelings, but we all know that actually isn't what's going on.  Maybe we do not all know that, so then we continue the day with that, "I wish you would spill that coffee on me, standing right above me, and not holding on on this shaky ass train this morning..", or "Yea, I wish you would try to get on this train while I'm about to get off.  You are all the way catching the ill football dropped shoulder in your chest.  Say something.."

Ignorance is bliss.  A self indulgence that gets finer with age.  And just like the wine reference, our tolerance for intaking our own bullshit increases the more we consume it.  Becoming less and less affected by ourselves, without the right people around you to make sure you don't feel yourself too excessively while intoxicated on you, we can all be at risk of sounding foolish, looking uncompromising, and generally playing ourselves.  Thus throwing shade, leaving people with a bad taste in their mouth and becoming the sediment at the bottom of a good bottle of red that sometimes slips into a sip, ruining the experience.  

It's simple.  Don't be sediment.  

Smile Harder.
