Anthony Perrotta is a filmmaker and writer. A Long Island native, he earned his B.F.A. in Film/Video from Towns College. His short film "21st Century Shuffle," which he wrote, produced and directed, premiered at the 2014 Big Apple Film Festival, and his upcoming project, "Before the Law," which is based on the short story of the same name by Franz Kafka, is currently in pre-production. In addition to his work at PopMatters, he also contributes to The Untitled Magazine-Online Edition and and is a staff writer for ScreenPrism: The Hub for Film & TV Analysis.
Both films are the story of a lone, jaded gunslinger in a lawless wasteland, but instead of being set in the rurally nostalgic heartland, they're set in the dilapidated coastlines of an empire in decline.
