Written and directed by Anna, the film is currently looking for funding with an aim to start shooting in early 2017.
This month Anna has been working with Director Adrienne Campbell-Holt as the Associate Director for the launch of independent media company, Matter Studios. Matter work with diverse, visionary, entrepreneurial voices to give them the financing and creative support to develop different media products under their own brands. Needless to say, it was an incredible night.

‘Director Anna Loyd Bradshaw has taken a leaf out of Christopher Guest’s book, finding authenticity through delightful awkwardness and simplicity.’
Happy Yummy Chicken review from Phindie
‘The success of the film lies in its understated subtlety. Without overly exaggerating the characters… the cast and team create a recognizable scenario with figures that are at once familiar and laughable.’
Happy Yummy Chicken review from DC Metro Arts

For the last month, Anna has been back in England celebrating her wedding. (She and her husband were officially married at Manhattan City Hall in 2014 but this November the two finally had the chance to celebrate with all their friends and family in a slightly more traditional setting!)
Anna is now back in New York and excited to be working on a number of projects including directing several new theatre pieces that will be shown in the New Year.
Directed by Anna Loyd Bradshaw and starring Taryn Manning (Hustle & Flow, Orange is the New Black), Diane Guerrero (Jane the Virgin, Orange is the New Black), Suzzanne Douglas (How Stella Got Her Groove Back, Lifetime’s Whitney) and Emma Myles (Orange is the New Black), Happy Yummy Chicken is a mockumentary about two men making a musical about one woman who sits in a fried chicken restaurant for two months after a breakup. A satire of true events, the film takes a simultaneously outrageous and poignant view of the insane things we do for love.
