Anton’s first passion was the written word, but on receiving his first camcorder at the age of 13, he began the development of his visual language. After graduating with a degree in English from Cambridge University, Anton worked as a copywriter, screenwriter and script editor, while writing and directing his own short fictional films.
In the last few years, he has turned his focus to documentary, producing and editing films ranging from depictions of motherhood in Kenya to the conflict in Eastern Ukraine, which have been broadcast internationally. In 2015-17, he directed his first longer form documentary, Team Faizy, about an Afghan refugee who came to the UK alone as a child and became a rising star in British boxing. In 2019, he edited BAFTA-winning filmmaker Victoria Mapplebeck’s The Waiting Room, which chronicled her cancer diagnosis as a single mother, and was nominated for a Critics' Choice Documentary Award.
Anton is particularly interested in the way an individual’s integrity relates to society, as well as looking at social issues through an unflinching yet lyrical lens.
