She also writes and directs short films under her own production company, Some Blonde Girl Productions. On all projects, she has made it a point to collaborate with a diverse and predominantly female crew. In both live-action and animation, Anca’s work features female-driven comedy with a dark, surreal twist.

He often plays pretend in front of groups of strangers for personal satisfaction.
