Antonia Bogdanovich was a filmmaker and screenwriter who rose to prominence in 2015 with the release of her directorial debut, "Phantom Halo. " As a Hollywood native, Bogdanovich was surrounded by the movie industry. Of course, it also helped that her father was Oscar-nominated director Peter Bogdanovich. Growing up immersed in all things movies, Bogdanovich was practically groomed to have a career in the film industry. She started acting at age 4, having appeared in an uncredited role in her father's Oscar-winning drama, "The Last Picture Show" (1971), and eventually went on to appear in "They All Laughed" (1981), "Illegally Yours" (1988), and "The Whole Wide World" (1996). However, Bogdanovich eventually found that her true passion was for writing. She wrote her first screenplay while attending UCLA, and found that she had a knack for the script format. After college she worked as a freelance journalist for local papers throughout the Los Angeles region, while spending her free time crafting screenplays. She eventually decided to focus her efforts entirely on screenplay writing, and in 2011, wrote and directed her debut short film, "My Left Hand." The task of directing actors - something her father knew all too well - came effortlessly to Bogdanovich, and it wasn't long before she realized she had found her calling. She then set out to write and direct a feature film. That film, 2015's "Phantom Halo," starring Rebecca Romijn and Tobin Bell, was well-received by critics upon its release.
