‘Face Divided’ by Edward Allan Baker

IMG_6316This month Anna was also directing ‘Face Divided’ by Edward Allan Baker. This 1980s one act play is set in the emergency room of a Providence, RI hospital where Debbie waits for her husband. Their daughter, Jess, had an accident, at least, that is the story she is sticking to. ‘Face Divided’ was presented along with two other one acts and had a 6 night run at Under St Marks Theater on New York’s Lower East Side. The proceeds from this production went to The Changing Room 11.

Presented by The Dare Tactic, ‘Good Fit’ played to a sold out audience at WOW Cafe Theatre on April 13th.

Directing for Burn It Down

ALB Directing for Burn It DownBurn It Down is a collaborative community of artists, established with the aim of learning more about filmmaking by creating new work in a safe environment. Once a month they meet to shoot a short film for the purpose of learning and burning through their 10,000 hours of experience! It’s a really incredible initiative and Anna had an awesome day directing for them.

48 hour film project

Anna had an amazing (and exhausting) few days this weekend shooting for the New York 48 hour film project competition. Staying awake for two days straight, Anna worked with an incredible team to direct a seven minute short film that was written, shot, edited and scored in just 48 hours. Epic.
