Tony Grisoni worked in many different areas of film making before turning to screenwriting. QUEEN OF HEARTS, 1989 was his award winning first feature directed by Jon Amiel. He has worked closely with a number of directors including Michael Winterbottom, John Boorman, Rankin, Julian Jarrold, James Marsh, Anand Tucker and Terry Gilliam (FEAR & LOATHING IN LAS VEGAS and TIDELAND). Grisoni is proud to count himself amongst the crew on board the ship of fools: THE MAN WHO KILLED DON QUIXOTE.
VANISHED - A VIDEO SEANCE, 1999 was made in collaboration with performance artist and poet, Brian Catling. "...genre busting - an encounter between mainstream movie story telling and the art avant-garde..." - Jonathan Romney. He and Catling have gone to make other pieces for galleries and together host the annual celebration of the absurd, CABARET MELANCHOLIQUE. Other artists he has collaborated with include Oona Grimes and Dryden Goodwin.
