Antony Bolante holds an M.F.A. from the UArts / Pig Iron Devised Performance Program, which specializes in ensemble-created, physically based theater. Before earning his MFA in devised theater, he established a strong track record for creating exciting new works for the stage. Notably, he produced original plays for 5 consecutive Orlando Fringe Festivals that earned critical and popular acclaim. But although Tony has been focused on creating performance works, he maintains an interest in copywriting, instructional writing, technical documentation, and video. In fact, Tony also holds an M.F.A. in film/video production. Prior to attending the Pig Iron school, much of his work was devoted to teaching video editing and effects software—in print, in person, and online. Tony has created training for college-level courses, workshops, Adobe Systems, Peachpit, and Lynda dot com.
