Anthony, or "Brooks" (as he’s affectionately known as) was born in Baltimore, MD. His career in cinematography was sparked by an exploratory nature growing up as a military brat in countries such as Cuba, Italy, and various cities throughout the US. He immediately became an explorer--escaping warning shots from Cuban border patrol, evading fist fights with native Silician teenage boys, and witnessing the mischief that ensues in the piazzas during Italy’s Carnivalé. This nomadic experience would shape a vast world view that made it inevitable that he became a visual storyteller of some sort.
After moving to Los Angeles in 2010 he started as a camera operator—and eventually transitioning into a professional cinematographer. Constant travel is what helps harden his visceral approach to creating images—and his migrant nature lead him from capturing scripted narratives to long-form documentary endeavors—most notably the 1st two seasons of NBA star Lebron James’ executive produced series “Top Class: The Life and Times of the Sierra Canyon Trailblazers”. The AMAZON streamed docuseries follows Lebron "Bronny" James Jr and his high school basketball team through two rigorous years of toughness.
Anthony has a portfolio of work spanning feature films, shorts, commercials, and docuseries—through which he was able to join the IATSE Local 600 as a Director of Photography. With a wealth of global perspective, his filmmaking sensibilities are best paired with narratives that allow for movement between levity and darkness. Anthony has aimed to reveal the intimacies of humanity through his work.
If not a filmmaker, he'd probably be a historian...maybe an analyst.
