ANTIOCH HERALD -- While attending Antioch High School, Anthony C. Ferrante took a film course at Los Medanos College. The movie director, who gained fame with his four Sharknado films, has been back in Antioch, over the past two weeks, filming a TV thriller entitled Forgotten Evil. “My very first film I shot at the El Campanil Theatre but the lights went out,” Ferrante said in an interview this week. “I shot a whole other horror film in the basement and at the Riverview Lodge.” “I filmed a lot of different things in Antioch,” he added. Besides his course at LMC, Ferrante earned his liberal arts degree in film studies from San Francisco State.
