Tony Dean Smith

British Columbia

Born in South Africa and living in Vancouver since his teens, Tony Dean Smith is a Director, Writer and Editor – known for his elegant camerawork, grounded performances and sharp sense of story. His feature-film directorial debut, VOLITION, is an elevated sci-fi thriller that has swept up awards across the world receiving rave reviews from Variety, The Hollywood Reporter, Ain’t It Cool News, and Rotten Tomatoes (88% Fresh). Tony Dean most recently directed JON VOIGHT and JONATHAN RHYS MEYERS in the PARAMOUNT+ feature film, MERCY (Reservoir Dogs meets Die Hard). He continues to write/develop his next personal projects while helming dramas and thrillers including DISAPPEARANCE IN YELLOWSTONE, THE KILLER DOWNSTAIRS and an upcoming political thriller for Paramount+. He was the youngest director on the acclaimed television series ROBSON ARMS (3 episodes over 2 seasons) and has won numerous awards and accolades for his directing, starting with his award-winning 35mm short film, REFLECTION.  A life-long camera nerd and storyboard artist, his ability to see the edit before the shoot allows him to save hours of production time, doubly aided by his background as an award-winning picture editor. As an actor of stage (yes, jazz hands) and screen (X-FILES, POLTERGEIST), Tony’s sense of character, precision and playfulness are always present, giving him unparalleled comfort on set – allowing for truly authentic and courageous collaboration between his fellow producers, actors, and crew.
