Anna's fourth feature film, "Deadly Illusions," was completed under her company banner Kiss and Tale Productions – where she wrote, directed, and produced. The film became an instant smash hit upon its release on Netflix in March of 2021. The psychological thriller, known for its bold approach and "keep-you-guessing narrative" has been featured in a myriad of publications including Forbes, Newsweek, People, Elle, E News, Fatherly, etc. for breaking numerous streaming records, landing at number one worldwide for 8 days and the top ten worldwide for 18 days. The story follows a bestselling female novelist suffering from writer's block who hires an innocent young woman to watch over her twin children. As the novelist dangerously indulges in her new best seller, the line between the life she's writing and the one she's living becomes blurred. The film stars Kristin Davis, Dermot Mulroney, Greer Grammer and Shanola Hampton and was acquired by Voltage Pictures for domestic and worldwide sales during the pandemic.

Most recently Anna finished directing and writing her fifth feature, "Blunt" starring Amy Smart, Matt Davis, Billy Zane, Greer Grammer and Ne-Yo. The mystery thriller is a classic who-dun-it about a woman trapped inside her own vacation rental, and must figure out who assaulted her and why. Voltage Pictures is handling sales, and the film is expected to release sometime this year.
