On a cold winter morning, a lone piano stands curbside in New York City. Passersby slow, stop, and play. Some play well. All day long they collect and disperse, and into the night they measure and shove and deliberate. What if…? Can we take it? Who abandons a piano?
Plinking slightly out-of-tune over the white noise of Broadway’s cars, buses, trucks, and sirens, the piano awaits its fate. Solo, Piano – NYC is a 5-minute film of the last 24 hours of a once-wanted piano.
Anthony’s award-winning short film, Solo Piano – NYC, was selected as one of the outstanding photo projects of today by the 2013 Look3 Festival of the Photograph and was featured in the New York Times’ Op-Docs Series. Solo, Piano – NYC is screening at festivals around the world and is being released theatrically in Russia in 2013.
His documentary, ORIGINAL INTENT: The Battle for America, aired on PBS in 2009.
Anthony trained with several Academy Award winning film editors and is himself an accomplished editor. His editing credits include THE CURE (Universal), A SOLDIER’S SWEATHEART (Paramont/Showtime), and FIRST TIME FELON (HBO).
