*For the GOV-TV/Public Art series "Take Another Look"
Tony DellaFlora helped design, guide and produce a very successful youth involvement program called the Storytellers Summer Studio program. The program was aimed at middle school youth in areas of the city where little or no summer programs existed. In consort with the 21st Century Community Learning Program, this program provided youth an opportunity to write, produce, direct, film, and act out stories that they themselves wanted to tell. The program was one of the very best programs I have seen in my nearly 39 years of directing youth service organizations. Mr. DellaFlora brings a fresh perspective to reaching youth and a passion and dedication to storytelling, writing, directing and producing high quality films and plays. I consider Tony a consummate professional and would work with him at every opportunity that presented itself."
Chris Baca, President/CEO of Youth Development, Inc.
Tony worked with a Youth Development, Inc. project in the summer of 2010. This project was a summer program called Storytellers Summer Studio and was the first of its kind in Albuquerque. The program worked with students from Jimmy Carter and Truman middle schools. Both of these schools are highly impacted by low income and families’ inability to provide additional enrichment to their children. These schools are southwest of Albuquerque where access to city/state museums and classes are non-existent.
The program consisted of art and film professionals in the areas of graphics, acting, filming, scriptwriting, and producing working side-by-side with educators/teachers of those schools to write and implement lesson plans in all those areas. Mr. DellaFlora was responsible for overseeing the programs at the two sites and providing hands-on writing, directing and filming opportunities to the students. The high-level work that these students produced under Mr. DellaFlora’s tutelage surprised even the teachers at those sites. Students then presented their work in a theatre setting to their parents and guests.
I very much appreciated Mr. DellaFlora’s creative and flexible abilities and skills that he used to make this a memorable learning experience for our students!

"From journalism to filmmaking, over the last decade I have been fortunate to work with Tony on a number of different film and media projects. I was especially impressed with the Volcanoes of New Mexico doc he produced for us. A big hit, it was distributed nationally. Tony consistently impresses me with his knowledge, hard work, dedication, and courage. I am a big fan."
Michael Kamins, Executive Producer, KNME-TV
Tony’s professional work with the Albuquerque Public Art program spans almost two decades. His coverage of the program as a writer for the Albuquerque Journal presented the complexities of public art processes in an enlightening and informative way. In the mid-2000’s, Tony developed a highly creative series of marketing and educational outreach strategies for the program.
Currently, the Public Art program is benefiting from Tony’s years of experience as he directs and produces public art videos that range from sit-down interviews with creative and academic thinkers to documentaries about artists, public art projects and Albuquerque’s history.
Tony’s role as producer/director of has brought the Public Art program out of the boring, static ages and into the dynamic world of moving picture storytelling.
Sherri Brueggemann, City of Albuquerque Public Art Program Manager
I've known Tony for several years. We met professionally on a City of Albuquerque Public Arts Program project and have since developed a friendship. I became a regular attendee of his co-produced Duke City Shootout, an astounding array of international indie talent brought in locally to produce and shoot a film in a week's time with the support of governmental and private sector backing. The stamina alone needed to pull off this intense schedule is extraordinary (not only during that crucial week, but during the whole year in preparation for it) and Tony went above and beyond in every aspect.
I also had the wonderful opportunity of having Tony produce, help script and do the voice talent for a video short to promote my first book, "Decoding Design" on the internet. He came through with flying colors! The video received almost 35,000 hits without a single "dislike" over a relatively short period of time and I still get comments on it. Tony's work underscored this essential marketing tool that helped put my work into the world in a significant way.
I can't think of a better creativity:project ratio. His energy, enthusiasm and eclectic talent are pivotal qualities in today's changing market. He has a writer's keen mind, an artists' inspired heart, and a philosopher's deep soul: timeless qualities that balance everything from budget to schedule to inspiration to conjuring the exact resource needed.
Maggie Macnab, designer, educator, author
Tony wrote, directed and produced a short video for us in 2007 in commemoration of our 20th anniversary. The concept was wonderful — adults (many of them elected officials) acting like kids being interviewed by a kid — and the final product was quite memorable. He also did it on a very tight deadline so we could show it at our anniversary dinner.
Sharon Kayne, New Mexico Voices for Children
Tony DellaFlora worked closely with the staff and other volunteers at Albuquerque Little Theatre to create our Luminaria Awards, an event designed to coincide with the annual Academy Awards television presentation. It was a creative means for the theatrical community to honor New Mexico's motion picture industry, which has made such an impact on our city and serve as a fun fundraiser for the theatre as well. Tony's vast knowledge of the movie business, his organizational skills, his writing ability and his creativity helped make this a dynamite event. We could not have done this event with out him, nor would we have wanted to.
Henry Avery, Executive/Artistic Director, Albuquerque Little Theatre
Tony was a valuable and integral part of The Filmmakers Channel, and in all our collaborations, I've found him to be exceptionally creative, attentive to details, with a focus on providing quality work on time.
