Anthony Bila
Film Director
Also known as ‘The Expressionist’, Anthony considers himself a creator through a one-way mirror. Using primarily visual mediums, he works as a commercial, fashion, and documentary photographer in both digital and analog formats.
As a film director, a medium he considers the ‘holy grail’ of creativity where all aspects of art come together, Anthony is hyper-vigilant about being a conduit for the stories of South Africans and Africans at large. In the last few years, Anthony has also delved in cultural entrepreneurship through his content consultancy Studio Bila, a creative and concept agency that works with emerging and established entities, bridging the gap between young African brands and creators and blue-chip multi-national companies. Studio Bila is where Anthony’s 10 years of advertising and marketing experience find a home coupled with his prowess for visual storytelling.
