In every production Annie has produced, she has enjoyed a heavy involvement in the script development. She is fiercely story-driven and prefers to work closely with her creative team to help them realise their vision without compromise. Annie hopes to build a slate of films to champion gender, racial and class equality in film. Other areas of interest include the protection of children, and education as a pathway to true equality. Annie is keen to collaborate with people of different cultures with unique stories to offer, and hopes to pursue an international co-production in the future.
