Anthony R. Page
Anthony R Page is the CEO & Artistic Director for a regional multi-media company called Blue Bistro Creative. Based in Atlanta, GA, the company has been involved in a wide-variety of independent film, television and theater projects as well as client-driven photography & graphic design throughout the Southeast. Although he frequently becomes involved in an eclectic mix of creative and community based projects, he works primarily as a director, producer, writer and actor in the world of film, television and theater.
Anthony’s educational journey took off as he graduated number three in his class of the United States Navy’s Avionics & Advanced Electronics School. He then spent most of his military career working as a plane captain at VA-42 at the Naval Air Station-Oceana, based in Virginia Beach, VA. Considering himself a life-long student, he later earned an Associate's degree from Saint Leo University and spent a brief period studying biochemistry at Old Dominion University in Norfolk, VA. After moving to Atlanta, GA he went on to graduate from Georgia State University with four degrees - - Accounting, Finance, Theater as well as Film & Video Production. He later completed a Master's in Business Administration (MBA) at the University of Phoenix and a certificate program in Multimedia Arts from Sessions College of Professional Design.
In the art world, Anthony has made a major impact, curating the first ever art exhibition that celebrated the life of James Brown during the summer of 2006. The art show titled, Visual Soul, included nearly 100 artists from more than 50 cities covering five continents. This world-class exhibition was a part of the James Brown “Soul of America” Music Festival in Augusta, GA. In 2010 Anthony also served as project manager & co-curator for the Nina Simone Experience, which celebrated the life of the music icon through a variety of art forms including song, spoken word poetry and visual art.
Across his career as an actor in film & television, he has more than 30 credits to his name. Although he gained a degree of success as an actor, he soon found his niche as a director / producer. To date he has directed several TV pilots including The Next Level (Metamorphic Media); RearView (Omniblue Media); SPARK (Blue Bistro Creative) Prentice Place (Drew 2 Media Works); Cycles (from Executive Producer Dr. Marion Myers) and Besties (HeLa House Productions). Anthony recently produced and directed a series of short films including RJ Sings the Blues, Armed and Dangerous, and Life Support, which have each traveled the festival circuit in California, New York and Texas. While serving as the project manager at the Lucy C. Laney Museum, he produced and co-directed 9 plays that were part of August Wilson's 10-Play Pittsburgh Cycle.
Regarding his latest projects, Anthony looks forward to directing and producing an independent television pilot called Vavavoom. And his groundbreaking original stage play, Somewhere in Summerville, has been accepted into the American Black Theatre Festival, one of the most prestigious festivals in the country.
With a convergence of laser focus, consistent work ethic, business acumen and strategic persistence, Anthony’s journey will continue to progress as he leaves his unique imprint of creativity in the world of film, tv and theatre.
