Tony D’Aquino is a highly experienced, award winning writer and director. A graduate of the prestigious Victorian College of the Arts, School of Film and Television, he has directed music videos, television commercials, short films and television drama with budgets ranging from zero to over a million dollars.

Tony was originally a corporate executive with Carlton & United Breweries, where he managed all operational elements of the multi-million dollar brewing process. This included managing large-scale projects and leading diverse teams of up to 100 people. In this high-pressure environment, where every minute of down-time costs thousands of dollars, Tony learned to plan, manage and execute to budget and the highest quality standards.

He is an adaptable and inventive director who has won multiple awards for his TVC work and in 2000 was a winner of the unique Tropfest Film Festival with his short film Like It Is. In 2006, he was personally selected by Bryan Brown as a rising talent and invited to write and direct an episode of the innovative TV series – Two Twisted. The episode, Arkham’s Curios and Wonders, was the highest rating of the series.

In 2015, Tony took part in the first ACTSIA Accelerator POD – a genre film development program. The horror feature he developed – Killer Instinct – will go into production in late 2017, with Tony attached as director. The film will be in partnership with the Canberra production company, The Film Distillery, and international sales agents Odin’s Eye Entertainment.

Tony brings a unique combination of life experience to the creative process of filmmaking, which has resulted in a track record of delivering innovative projects on time, on budget and in a positive manner that fosters artistic risk taking and high achievement.
