ANTHONY HEMINGWAY has long been fascinated with the art of
telling stories, yet it took stepping onto a set as a production assistant while
still in high school for him to find his medium. From that day to this,
Hemingway has found a way to bring stories to life on screens large and small.
Shortly after his experience on The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles set in
North Carolina, Hemingway began chasing his passion. He became the youngest
Second A.D. in the Directors Guild of America at the age of 19.
Hemingway's A.D. experience included work on feature films: Ali, Changing
Lanes and The Manchurian Candidate, as well as acclaimed television series', The
Corner, Oz, Law & Order: Criminal Intent and The Wire. He has worked with dozens
of the top producers and directors of the day, including Jonathan Demme, Barry
Levinson, Scott Rudin, Tom Fontana and Agnieszka Holland.
Hemmingway's directorial debut came in 2006 on The Wire. He has since
directed episodes of True Blood, Battlestar Galactica, Heroes, The Closer,
Shameless, Falling Skies, CSI: NY, Tell Me You Love Me and CSI: Miami.
In 2008, George Lucas and Rick McCallum tapped Hemingway to direct Red Tails,
a film that George Lucas had been working on perfecting for more than two
decades. The World War II action adventure film was inspired by the legend of
the heroic Tuskegee Airmen, the first all African American aerial combat units
that overcame fierce racism and segregation to serve with valor and excellence.
After wrapping Red Tails principal photography, Hemingway teamed up with
producers David Simon, Eric Overmyer and Nina Noble to launch Treme, the
critically acclaimed HBO series set in the famous New Orleans neighborhood of
the same name. Hemingway serves as Co-Executive Producer and Director on Treme.
In addition to his directing credits, Hemingway served as the Executive
Producer on two independent short films, Rawfish and Alyson's Closet, which won
the Morte Rosenfeld Award for Best Short at the Utah Film and Video Festival in
Hemingway has earned multiple NAACP Image Award nominations for his work on
Treme, Heroes, and Close to Home. In 2008, Hemingway received an AFI Award for
his contribution to The Wire. In 2005, the North Carolina Cine Noir Film
Festival honored him with the Trailblazer Award.
Born in the Bronx, Hemingway currently resides in Los Angeles, CA.
