Professional life[edit]

Anthony Fabian completed "Louder Than Words" in 2013, an American independent feature film based on true events starring David Duchovny, Hope Davis and Timothy Hutton. It tells the poignant story of John and Brenda Fareri, grieving parents who were inspired by the unexpected death of their young daughter to build a world class children's hospital. The hospital helps the family to heal, as well as looking after thousands of sick children and their families, becoming a model for many children's hospitals thereafter. In 2014, he directed a short film with Freddie Fox and Tuan Yuan called Freeze-Frame for the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, and his next feature film will be an adaptation of Paul Gallico's much loved 1958 novella, Mrs Harris Goes to Paris. He is developing an ongoing television drama series called "Debs", based on "Last Curtsey" by Fiona MacCarthy, with Executive Producer Stewart Till, and a second TV series called "The Bacon", set in New York. He is also attached to direct "Dead of Winter", an American thriller based on an original script by Katherine Ruppe, and has begun work on a multi-part documentary project about South Africa's future called "Good Hope".

Fabian's filmography includes profiles of performers Luciano Pavarotti, Cecilia Bartoli, Joshua Bell, Angela Gheorghiu, Jean-Yves Thibaudet, Renée Fleming, Christophe Rousset, Olli Mustonen, Richard Egarr and composer John Tavener and he has made a number of promotional films for the Tourist Board of Great Britain, VisitBritain, featuring Dev Patel, Judi Dench, Twiggy, Rupert Everett, Luke Evans, Colin Montgomerie, Boris Becker, Jamie Oliver and Matt Smith. He is also the producer/director of an eight-part interview series narrated by Sue MacGregor called British Legends of Stage and Screen (2012), featuring Derek Jacobi, Claire Bloom, Michael Gambon, Diana Rigg, Michael York, Glenda Jackson, the late Christopher Lee and Ian McKellen, co-produced with John Dunworth and Executive Producer Sandy Lieberson. The series was broadcast in the UK on Sky Arts HD.
