Called "Hollywood's hardest working filmmaker" by talk show host Casey Ryan, Anne Lower always knew she was a born storyteller. Whether creating stories about phantom horses roaming the woods of her child hood home, or seeing her first short story, The Cave People, published, she knew that she was destined to write and direct.
However, the stage called her first. Making such notable appearances as “Chairman Turkey,” or “Head Witch,” or her favorite, “The Fish-Wife,” in her school plays, Anne made the transition into classical theatre at the age of 15, when she played Juliet in a university production of Romeo and Juliet. After college, Anne studied acting under the tutelage of Milan Stitt, Eric Morris and Elina de Santos. Anne’s acting resume includes May in Fool for Love, Beatrice in Much Ado About Nothing, Regan in King Lear, Anna in Burn This, as well as appearing as a recurring role in the short-lived series, "Tequila and Bonetti."
Anne has written and directed for the stage; her plays have won awards in Los Angeles, Seattle, New York, Oklahoma, Dallas and Denver. Her feature screenplay Eden was quarterfinalist in the PAGE screenplay awards, and finalist for the Sundance Film Festival Table Read. She worked as Organizing Director for V-Day for three years, directing and producing Eve Ensler’s "The Vagina Monologues" to raise awareness and funds for victims of DV/SA. Working with the Oklahoma Coalition Against Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault, Anne created The Delores Fund, which provides stop-gap funding to assist DV/SA victims to exit dangerous situations, establish new residencies, and receive an education.
Anne’s web series "They Live Among Us" debuted last fall. She hopes the next installation of TLAU will be launched by this fall. She and her partner Geoff Reeves are in pre-production with "Interglobal Trading Fund," are shopping an adventure/reality show, as well as a one-hour cable pilot, and other various things in certain stages of development.
Anne blogs about life in Hollywood at Princess Scribe, recently named “Screenwriting Web Site of the Week” by SCRIPT Magazine. She is currently co-writing a feature comedy, developing a short film and scheming about how to produce "Eden." In her spare time, when she is not working out, playing with fast cars, or cooking up a storm, she can be found sleeping. Sometimes. She plans to get a new headshot. Soon.
