Antony de Gennaro
I'm an artist producer currently focused on indie film, video, sound / music & photography .
I developed an obsession with music as a kid in New Jersey. My high school art teacher encouraged my interest in photography but said I would have to choose between the two mediums. Instead, I moved to Seattle where I have been merging sound and visuals ever since. I studied music at Cornish College of the Arts and began a lifelong DYI education of the art, production and distribution of my work.
I'm fascinated with how the world of imagination can affect our physical reality. I view art as a bridge or perception between the two while being able to harness the power of social commentary. For me the progression of music and photography naturally led into film making.
