Antonio Sanchez grew up down the shore in central New Jersey, eventually moving to Philadelphia to attend fine arts school. There, his talent for printmaking and sculpture merged with his interest in film, setting his career into motion.
In 2003 he worked with Consulate founder Chad Sipkin on A Letter to True, a film by Bruce Weber, sleeping on a cot in the basement of a Montauk home where they’d set up a temporary Avid. It marked the beginning of a highly productive collaboration with Bruce and Chad. They worked on films and commercials – developing a body of work featured worldwide, including the Berlin International Film Festival, the Toronto International Film Festival, Cannes, the Cambridge International Film Festival, and the Sundance Channel.
Antonio has also edited the award-winning feature documentary The Treasure of His Youth about the Italian photographer Paolo di Paolo: his life, process, and work. He works with a number of clients within the world of fashion, including Louis Vuitton, St. John’s, Kenneth Cole, Versace, and Shinola. Antonio has also worked on campaigns for Harley Davidson, GNC, and Mt. Sinai. His inspiring work with Mt. Sinai Hospital was a testament to creative ingenuity, crafted from only seven still images, voiceover, and music to share the emotional stories of doctors and patients alike.
When not editing, Antonio continues working on paintings and drawings in his spare time, and exhibits work in Washington, Philadelphia, and New York.
