ANEMONE PRODUCTIONS

As a producer, I am keenly interested in generating work for film, television, and theatre with an emphasis on the female protagonist. Anemone chooses stories in which women are at the center of the action, and as such we diversify the storytelling spectrum. Through diversity we create opportunities for greater empathy and understanding, and ultimately a more equitable society.
