Several months of blood, sweat, and tears went into this video, not to mention broken equipment, reshoots, a near disaster on the Williamsburg Bridge, and multiple 5 am call times. It’s also interesting to note that both Andrew and I have similar stories, 5 years apart. I hope you enjoy this video and that it inspires you in one way or another. Andrew and I fly to Africa in exactly 2 weeks…
All My Best,
This is Anne B., a yoga instructor in NYC. I met Anne over 12 years ago in London and now is she living out her dreams and passions in NYC.

Our short film, Across the Pond, a finalist for Tropfest NY 2013, the world’s largest short film festival.
Last Saturday our film premiered in front of tens of thousands of people and it was an incredible, surreal, unforgettable experience. It will go down as one of my most memorable moments in NYC. Liev Schreiber was the host and some of the judges included Malcolm Gladwell and Academy Award winning producer, Fisher Stevens (The Cove). It was an honor to be a part of such a large festival and share the stage with a talented group of filmmakers. One of the highlights for me was meeting Malcolm Gladwell, my favorite author!
I threw a party in NYC and friends came from Japan, Australia, California, high school, college, and of course NYC. I don’t think that’s really possible anywhere else in the world.
This is for you, dear friends. Thanks for an awesome time.
My photo of a haunting, dark NYC skyline the night after Hurricane Sandy devastated NYC was published on NBC New York today and broadcasted live on their morning show. Millions of residents and the vast majority of lower Manhattan still remain without power.
