Head of Production
Since breaking into the industry on his first film (RAGTIME, directed by Milos Forman in 1980), Tony has had a successful and prestigious career in film and television which continues to expand with his coming on board BRANDTONE FILMS as a Producer and Head of Production.
Some of the highlights of Tony’s career include the award winning film AMERICAN BEAUTY and the much acclaimed political TV drama by Aaron Sorkin called THE WEST WING. Other notable films include THE SALTON SEA (directed by DJ Caruso),, PARENTHOOD (directed by Ron Howard) and PRESUMED INNOCENT(directed by Alan Pakula). Standout TV projects include the Stephen King mini-series THE STAND, HEROES (NBC), & HELEN OF TROY (USA).
Among the many accolades Tony has received over the years, he has also received 3 DGA nominations, winning one with director Sam Mendes forAMERICAN BEAUTY, and has had the good fortune to work all over the United States and in many foreign countries ( including Mexico, Portugal, England, France, Malta, The Virgin Islands, and Russia) on various projects and considers his international experience one of his most important attributes in bringing a solid base to his producing skills.
Although much of his career has been spent with a walkie talkie in hand as a 1st Assistant Director, Tony has spent the better part of the last decade consulting for such companies as 20th Century Fox, Universal, Redtie Films, Rainstorm Entertainment, GeniusFilms, and RiverRoad.
