Greg Bowyer is the writer/director of the screen adaptation of Anthem. He received his Master of Arts degree in Cinema Production from the University of Southern California School of Cinema-Television. While studying at USC, under the guidance of famed director Edward Dmytryk (The Caine Mutiny), Greg adapted and directed the Ayn Rand short story, The Husband I Bought. Although a student production, Ayn Rand's intellectual heir Leonard Peikoff responded favorably to this adaptation. Greg is the only living director to have successfully adapted and directed a movie of an Ayn Rand story.
Greg's master's thesis film, For All It’s Worth, won finalist awards from student film festivals and was selected by USC as one of its top 100 films ever made at that school for its atomfilms.com spotlight. His feature script, First Flight, attracted esteemed actor Joe Mantegna to star in a promotional trailer for the film (see the trailer at firstflightfilm.com). Greg's feature script-writing experience includes the romantic comedy With This Ring, about a surgeon who loses her engagement ring inside a malpractice attorney, and the romantic drama Twilight of the Idols, a story about forgery, murder, and a love triangle set in the art world. Greg has worked in the motion picture and television industry for fourteen years, working in feature post production at Disney, as well as in television production at Sony, CBS, and Paramount Pictures.
