About Tony

Tony Bentley spent 10 years as a Musician/Entertainer working for Cunard aboard the QE2 and for Princess and Norwegian Cruise Lines working in the Ship's orchestra.

Not content with that, he went to Cincinnati, Ohio and interned at Insight Communications as cameraman/editor/floor manager/graphics. He also did camera work at various other cable channels in Cincinnati.

After studying at the Central Film School and New York Film Academy Tony has since been adding skills by the dozen which can all be seen at

From Budgeting to Scheduling with Peter Marshall-Vancouver, through to Mark Travis--Directing Actors, Syd Field--Screenwriting and through Project Management, Advertising Copywriting, Events Planning and developing his Lighting D,.P skills. Obsessing about lighting.

A animal lover, and with eclectic sports tastes, Tony variates between Los Angeles and the UK, hoping to make the move to Los Angeles permanent, and has several short film and a couple of features to develop.
