Anthony Dalton:


Anthony Dalton is only 23 years old, but he’s accomplished quite a lot in his short time on this planet. Anthony played college football at Wake Forest, made the Pro Bowl in January as a member of the Carolina Panthers, and was the MVP of Super Bowl 50. All that success is impressive, but it’s not the primary reason why I’m excited to share his story.


After only a short time in Atlanta, Anthony landed his breakout role as Officer Donnie Harris in Tyler Perry’s stage play, “Laugh to Keep from Crying”. Since then, Anthony has had numerous roles in television and film. Currently, Anthony is a Series Regular on BET’s SISTAS, after a Series run on OWN’s THE PAYNES. Other credits include AMBITIONS, UNDERGROUND, SHOTS FIRED and more. On the big screen, Anthony has appeared in a number of films that include BARBERSHOP 3: THE NEXT CUT, SINGLE MOMS CLUB, MARRY and SUMMER MADNESS. In addition to the big and small screen, Anthony has appeared in music videos and Commercials regionally and nationally.

Tony’s dual role at the College gives him a unique perspective as both staff and faculty, support and instructor. As a staff member, Tony manages, maintains and troubleshoots the MediaCom facilities and equipment; assists faculty, students and staff with resource use; and researches, proposes and implements innovations and improvements to those resources. He is also a member of several groups and divisions on campus, including the Digital Learning Team, Instructional Technology and Digital Learning, Media Services and Healthy Youth Peer Education. As an instructor and adjunct professor, Tony instructs specialized workshops both in and out of the classroom for various media technologies. He also is the instructor-of-record for media technology laboratory courses including Documentary Research and Video Production Labs, as well as the professor for the CUE-level course Digital Media Design Lab, a MediaCom seniors-only course designed completely around student-crafted mediamaking projects of various modalities and design. Through both his work as support staff and instructor, Tony studies and implements mediamaking theories, practices and technologies; the intersections of tech support and counselling psychology; digital storytelling as a tool for learning technology and encouraging self-expression; and the value and pitfalls of edutainment in higher education.
