ABOUT

Anton is a director & (sometimes when he's feeling crazy) also a writer, based in Los Angeles, California.

The eldest son of Austrian and Hungarian immigrants, Anton was born in Toronto and played NCAA Division 1 soccer before giving up his athletic career to pursue filmmaking. After years of shooting wedding videos, Anton had his first breakthrough directing a music video for Canadian indie rock band The Dears, which was featured on Wired Magazine and MTV. Anton’s passion for short format storytelling helped him transition into directing TV commercials across the world. His clients include Starbucks, JEEP, Dairy Queen, the Asian Games, Century 21, Kraft and Samsung. Anton’s recent short-doc ‘Aftermask’ was featured as the ‘Best of September 2020’ by Shots Creative. In 2021, his debut narrative short ‘Break Any Spell’ screened at Oscar & BAFTA-qualifying film festivals around the world, winning the Special Jury Prize for Excellence in Storytelling at the prestigious SCAD Savannah Film Festival and ‘Best Fantasy Short’ at FilmQuest. In 2022, Canal+ acquired exclusive rights to broadcast and stream ‘Break Any Spell’ worldwide.

Anton is a member of the Director’s Guild of America.
