ANTON JOSEF
With only a few year of directing experience behide him, Anton has developed a distinct visual style for storytelling, merging his post-production background with a highly photographic sensibility, creating unique visceral experiences with every project. With a passion for finding a bit of surrealism within every shot, Anton's inspirations sange from the ethereal palette of Bruni Aveillan to worldly vibrancy of Tarsem and the graphic CG illustrations of Zack Synder.

Born in Toronto, Canada, Anton studied at York University and earned a BA in Fine Arts with Honours before working as a freelance editor and vidual effects artist. During this time, his short films were nominated at various films festivals across North America which caught the eye of various commercial production companies in Canada. After signing with Industry Films, Anton began directing ads and creating digital content for clients such as Blackberry, The Walrus, RBC, Oxford Properties and the the luxurious BIsha Hotel among others. In addition to directing serveral music videos, most notably for Montreal indie band The Dears through Back Dog Films, Anton's Straigh 8 short film entry premiered at the Canners Lions Fringe festival as the only north american entry chosen.
