Anthony Fioranelli is a hard-hitting photojournalist who is currently making the transition to film-making. In his sixteen years as a photojournalist, Anthony has covered every major news event in the New York City tri-state area, including the terror attacks of the World Trade Center. Because of his professionalism and integrity as a journalist, Anthony was sought out to appear as a panelist on Court TV regarding the death of Princess Diana and the role of the press. In addition, the BBC developed a year-end show highlighting Anthony’s controversial images (published world-wide) from the airline crash of Flight 800 over the Atlantic Ocean off the shore of Long Island, New York. Anthony’s unique ability in gathering information to tell a compelling story is unsurpassed.  He has grown his one-man, one-camera spot news service, Multi Media Network News, into the largest spot news service in the tri-state area.
