About Tony

Marysville, Ohio native Tony Bumgarner developed a love for film making after enrolling in a film class in 2009. He crafted this new passion into reality through networking the local Independent scene in Columbus, Ohio and finding fellow artists just as serious about film.
Still the itch wasn't fully scratched until he joined Arris Productions and made his directorial, writing, and producing debut with his very own “Terrorizer.” Since its inception, Tony has made nothing but strides in perfecting his skills in all aspects of film making, eventually forming his very own production company- Step Off Productions.
Now in its third year, Step Off Productions has really set the bar for Independent film in Ohio. Often teaming up with Arris Productions, this force has been responsible for some of the most notable music videos, commercials and small films to come out of Columbus. Ever growing and needing to excel further into his art, Tony put his real life tragedies to paper for a reflection in what it takes to be a teen in small town America. The anti-bullying, anti-abuse themes in “State of Delinquency” afforded him not only a big budget, but a stellar cast of local, young thespians.
In addition to behind the camera work, Tony has also landed small roles in front of the camera- truly making this film maker well rounded and well respected in his profession.
