Antonio Weiss is a Native of Asuncion, Paraguay.
In the 1950’s, Antonio’s father, a Jewish-Austrian exiled from WWII, met his mother as he was roaming the Paraguayan countryside as a photographer.
Having inherited his father’s love of photography, Antonio majored in Production/Drama at Loyola University in New Orleans, and later moved to Santa Fe, New Mexico, where he has worked on video, film, and screenwriting projects since 1990.
He has won prizes at the Chicago International and Houston International film fest, in Live Action Shorts, Short Documentary and Feature Screenplay-Writing. He is currently a Producer /Director, in Santa Fe, where he is also working in digital photography and graphic design. His work has been shown in art galleries in Santa Fe, and used by L’Oreal and Kiehl’s campaigns. Currently, Weiss is finishing post-production on his own TV show with his company Wisdom Tribe Films. “Film and video have 24 and 30 frames rolling by every second. It is a beautiful challenge to convey something significant in only one frame.”
Antonio lives with artist McCreery Jordan in a world of painting, sculpting, photography, film-making and landscaping their garden.
