My name is Amelia Annen. I am a New York-based director, writer, actor, and comedian. My directorial film credits include Rural, Dinosaur Day, Angel, and Girl of My Dreams - which I most recently worked on as a member of the Ashes Artist Collective. In May, I graduated from NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts with a BFA in Drama and a Minor in Creative Writing. In my writing, I like to work with themes of gender, sexuality, love, and violence.
At the beginning of July, I traveled down to Virginia where I directed a short film, Rural, about a teenage girl living in conservative, rural Virginia grapples with identity and self-acceptance. We are now heading into post-production and I’m really looking forward to seeing the final product.
Girl of My Dreams is a romantic comedy about two young women living in New York, Anne and Willa. It’s feel good, romantic, and visually tons of fun.
Most of the clothes Willa (Kathleen Salazar) and Anne (Savannah Kovacs) are wearing are mine. I love to buy fun clothes at thrift shops and sorta collect lots of different pieces so most coats they both wear are mine, as well as the full lavender suit Willa wears in the dream sequences.
