Go behind the scenes of Anthony Green's short film The Dreaming with Shoot! in this exclusive interview and making of video.
Anthony Green is a young Canadian director interested in exploring global issues and contemporary morality through the medium of film. He currently lives in London, where as a recipient of the Graduate Merit Award, he is completing a postgraduate degree in Media and Communications at the London School of Economics.
Aged 21, he wrote and directed Pigeon, his first short film to attract international acclaim. The film recounts the true story of Susi Penzias and her attempt to flee Nazi-occupied France in 1941. Besides playing at over two dozen film festivals and winning numerous awards, Pigeon is employed as a model in Ken Dancynger and Pat Cooper's book Writing the Short Film, and used in classrooms worldwide as a tool for educating students about the Holocaust.
In 2005 Anthony earned a BFA with honours from New York University's Tisch School of the Arts. His thesis film, Screening, explores the sensitive topic of racial profiling, capturing the anti-Islamic sentiment of post-9/11 America. Premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival in 2006, it has gone on to play at festivals worldwide, winning over 20 prestigious awards.
Between his degrees, Anthony spent two years documenting the Rolling Stones' Bigger Bang tour. Through 120 cities, in 40 countries, Anthony and his partner recorded the on-stage and behind-the-scenes life of the legendary rock band. The resulting 70-minute documentary, entitled Salt of the Earth, packaged with three live concerts, has already become one of the best-selling music DVDs of all time.
Given the PlayStation stimulus word Challenge, Anthony created The Dreaming - an evocative piece that uses the spectacular Canadian lakes as a setting - with help from Jerry Bruckheimer as Executive Producer.
