Tony Wadham is an actor and filmmaker who has worked in television, film and theatre. He studied performance at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama and soon afterwards became a founder member of the Cardiff based classical theatre company Mappa Mundi, performing and touring in a wide range of Shakespeare plays. Later he appeared in the hit comedy Peepshow as Pete Preston, leader of the band the Executioners Bong plus several episodes of The Bill.
He regularly collaborates with the artist and film-maker Jon Ratigan. They are currently working on a surrealist episodic drama and recently Tony directed and produced the short film Bungalow written by Melanie Mchugh, for which Jon Ratigan was the lighting designer and camera man. Independently Tony created and filmed a short music video for the folk band Gawkey and is currently fundraising to direct his first feature length film of Twelfth Night.
Tony directs for a variety of video projects, including corporate, educational and documentary productions. He works well as a one-person unit allowing him a non- intrusive presence in intimate situations. He is particularly skilled at planning and developing a coherent product delivery on simple resources through particular attention to the interdependent aspects of shot construction, lighting, performance, edit and output formats. He has been a regular documentor of Dog Kennel Hill Project performances and projects, filming and editing their “Fictitious Truths" series of video works, and currently documents the salons and events at Le Relais.
