Before relocating to Los Angeles, Tania founded ZZ Productions Ltd, an independent production company in London from 2004 to 2010. Tania wrote, directed, and produced the feature film, THE RUN, which screened in 13 international film festivals and won five awards including one for Best Film and two each for Best Director and Best Actress. The film also received nominations for Best Actor, Best Supporting Actor, Best Soundtrack, Best Actress, Best Film and Best in Festival.

Since relocating to Los Angeles, several producers and authors have commissioned Tania to write screenplays, TV pilot scripts, and book adaptations. Highlights include a high-concept feature screenplay for producer Brian Kennedy (Credits: THE HOMESMAN starring Hilary Swank, Tommy Lee Jones, Meryl Streep and THE GREAT GILLY HOPKINS starring Kathy Bates, Glenn Close, Octavia Spencer) and two suspense/thriller feature screenplays for producer Barry Navidi (Al Pacino's producing partner).

Tania’s skills as a Writer/ Producer/ Director were also recognized for her work on the comedy web series, THE HOLLY DIDD SHOW, on the former web channel BEBO. The pilot was nominated as Best Webisode at the INNY Awards held in New York City.
