Anna Bamberger has a passion for innovative storytelling. As a director, producer, and writer, her desire to connect and communicate through art was strongly influenced by her international upbringing.
Russian-born and European-raised, Anna’s unique life experience includes 18 years of professional ballet and gymnastics as well as 3 years of performing arts training from New York’s own Stella Adler Studio. These elements played a key role in shaping her approach to her current projects in film, and her past projects on stage. As a whole, Anna is adamant about creating valuable stories that engage, challenge, and entertain audiences.
While studying at the Stella Adler Studio, Anna discovered that directing and producing allowed her a greater outlet for creativity and expression than performance alone; she was immediately drawn to the freedom and control. Developing a project from inception to completion became her chief ambition, and Anna stepped away from performance to focus exclusively on mounting live theater. Each new work sharpened her sense of focus and ability to stay rooted firmly in the moment, and she credits the unique challenges of theater for helping her produce the best possible work in any given environment.
As Anna’s experience and skills matured, the beautiful blonde found herself drawn to a film’s ability at capturing subtle nuances like color and shadow. The medium’s demand for constant change and learning kept Anna on her toes and constantly fine-tuning her own abilities. She discovered many overlaps between film and her personal experience with dance and acrobatics, since each involve a full-body performance with a strong focus on visual effects.
To continue her passion for discovering and creating great ideas, Anna Bamberger founded Anna B. Productions in 2016, a contemporary production house celebrating life, freedom of choice, and the joys of creating art within a trusting, collaborative environment. The company’s first film Just Within Reach, is a modern tale about the struggle between materialistic ambitions and a simple, loving family life. It is set to debut this year and stars Tami Roman (VH1’s Basketball Wives) and Estella Warren (Planet of the Apes – 2001).
Following Just Within Reach, Anna B. Productions’ next film, Defying The Tide, will detail the true story of a young Jewish mother’s struggle to survive the Holocaust with the help of a German stranger who risked her own and her family’s lives with her selfless actions. The story is hauntingly told through the eyes of the Jewish mother’s young daughter, Reha Sokolow, in the light of the recent inauguration of a Memorial Center in Berlin, Germany, entitled “Silent Heroes” on February 14 2018, celebrating the courageous lives of people who helped Jews survive at great risk to their own lives. A gripping and empowering story that couldn’t be told at a better time period that the current one, with its abundance of political, economic and social upheaval and uncertainty.
Anna is also currently working on another project very close to her heart, the drama ” The New City”, researching the impact of singularity and artificial intelligence on the work force and health field. Being a great proponent of technology and its force Anna is very eager to immerse herself into this research. She is collaborating with some key figures in the field as well as several prestigious academic institutions throughout the US and UK to advance this ambitious project and investigate where our human skills, ambitions and thoughts will stand in the very near future when compared to their rapidly developing robotic counterparts. A topic that is so pressing it couldn’t be told soon enough.
