A native of Queens, New York, Frank Bologna studied film and creative writing at the University of Central Florida and earned his M.F.A in Film Production at the Savannah College of Art and Design. While at SCAD, Frank edited and produced his thesis film, “Sober,” a psychological thriller which was showcased at many film festivals across the country. Frank also co-wrote the action short, “Reflection,” which earned a Special Jury Award at the Action/Cut Short Film Competition. Frank’s first foray into documentary television was writing and editing segments for “Farmers Almanac TV,” which aired on PBS for three seasons.
Upon returning to New York City, Frank began his career as a picture-editor, specializing in documentary, reality, and narrative short films. Some of the more notable television series Frank has edited include VH1’s “Black Ink Crew,” A&E’s “Live PD” and “Police Patrol,” Animal Planet’s, “Wild West Alaska,” History Channel’s, “Pawn Stars” and “Counting Cars,” and D.I.Y Network’s “The Vanilla Ice Project.”
Frank has recently edited a variety of short films which are currently running in the festival circuit, including, “Uncertainty Principle,” a musical comedy about a maid who falls in love with a scientist; “Kid Sister,” a drama about sisters dealing with bulimia; and “They Tried to Bury Us…,” a dance film testimonial honoring the memory of the 43 Mexican students and teachers who went missing in Iguana, Mexico, in September 2014.
In 2014, Frank established Taglio Productions, a post-production company specializing in documentary, narrative short films, and branded content. Taglio has done editorial work for clients such as The Princeton Review, True Facet, Farmers’ Chile.com, and Semillas Social Justice & Dance Collective. Frank currently lives in Astoria, Queens, where he continues to run Taglio as Head Editor and Owner.
