FILMOGRAPHY

FREUD'S MAGIC POWDER (2009)

(Intercontinental Pictures LLC.)  A period piece short film. Vienna, 1884.  Young Sigmund Freud is convinced that his research on his “magic powder”- otherwise known as cocaine – will advance his reputation and allow him to marry his love. Instead, it leads to a surprising revelation that will ensure his name in the history books forever. Freud’s Magic Powder offers a glimpse into one of the least known periods of Sigmund Freud’s life: years before he began studying psychoanalysis, the young doctor conducted extensive research on cocaine. In this short film, director Edouard Getaz paints a surprising portrait of Freud in his late 20’s: a departure from the austere figure of the revered intellectual icon he was to become later in life. This quirky period drama takes us directly into the hopes and fantasies of the ambitious doctor, whose dark ruminations – including the Oedipal complex – transformed the way we see ourselves. Tony said of the film, "Freud's Magic Powder is directed by the incredibly talented Swiss director Edouard Getaz. Many people aren't aware of this, but Sigmund Freud's early work toyed with the effects that cocaine had on the intellectual properties of man. In this film I play the role of "El Conquistador"-- a rather ambiguous figure and a man that truly intrigues Freud. One of the coolest parts of this project was that I got the chance to work with a French composer to write the lyric to a musical dream-sequence piece that I also appear in. The song itself is the soundtrack behind this trippy-nightmare and, from the bits of film that I viewed after the shoot, I can't wait to see it in its final state!"

FABLE (2007)

(Slota Pictures Inc.)  A bizarre phone call from his sister is the only thing that could drag Michael (Tony Vincent) back to the horrific memories that still permeate the home they shared with their overbearing and eccentric grandmother, played by former Andy Warhol superstar Ivy Nicholson. Fable is a surreal ride through the depths of the human psyche. The journey takes us through a childhood rich with fairytale play into an adulthood tainted with guilt, fear, sympathy, and unfathomable cruelty. When entwined in the twisted world of retribution, sometimes it's a good thing to run.  The film's producer Gerald Slota is an artist who splits his time between Paterson, New Jersey and Woodstock, New York. Check out the trailer (featuring Tony Vincent) which was created by David "Doigman" Gilmour.
