If I'm not in front of the camera, I'm busy watching other people in front of the camera. I'm a cinephile and proud of it. Check my resume to see what I've done. **ALL FILMS ON MY WEBSITE WERE WRITTEN, DIRECTED AND PRODUCED BY ANTON BASSEY (Excluding "A Thousand Words", which I was a co-director/producer/writer)
There's so many incredible shows debuting, lately. I mean everywhere. Fortunately, I've had the opportunity to be on the casts of a few shows, in their very first seasons. Go check out which ones I've been on.
More coming very soon...
My first love. Theatre is where I began and it'll be where I end. Nothing makes me happier than performing theatre. I haven't been able to do any, for quite some time, but hopefully that will end, soon...
