My Early Days and First Career

IMG_7328_BWAnna Christopher grew up in Hinsdale, Illinois, writing stories and riding horses. She then went on to attend Northwestern University and later the American Film Institute for Directing. Her short films have screened at film festivals worldwide and won numerous audience awards, a student Emmy and Best Family Pilot at The New York Television Festival. Her narrative work includes the quirky rom-com short The Internet Date, the viral hit Sunday Is Coming and the comedic web series Lisa’s Advice, in which she also stars. Her most recent short, Never Seen You Shine So Bright, premiered at the Shoot ‘Em Up story-screenplay-film series in Los Angeles.  Anna’s other projects include directing branded digital and broadcast content for LilyDidIt E-cards, Dannon, Olay, Trojan, Lactaid and the acclaimed Proctor & Gamble “Raising an Olympian” series, as well as Appointment in Vancouver a documentary following Olympic skier Casey Puckett to the Vancouver Games. As part of the annual LA based production of Unscreened, Anna directed her one-act play Adios Assholes, which she is now adapting to make as her feature directing debut. Anna wrote for MTV’s AWKWARD and SCREAM: The TV Series. Anna’s various film and television projects in development around town tend to deal with strong women, hilarious mischief and the pursuit of love — or as she likes to call it, an average Thursday night. Anna gets her best notes from her mom and loved owls before it was hip. Currently, Anna is writing on the staff of Amblin’s GREMLINS prequel series, GREMLINS: SECRETS OF THE MOGWAI for HBO Max.
