October of 2010 is when Anita created her startup production company, RIver Productions, L.L.C. She was working on a project called “Youthology” with co-producer Ty Jones of the IFC. She went on to work on a feature film in Tacoma, Washington titled “September Skies.” And after her stint in Washington she was drawn to the 168 Film Project that not only saw her grow as an actor, but as an Executive Producer who crafted her volunteer cast and crew into a manageable production machine of 40. With the assistance of key professional personnel, such as, a director. She enlisted the aid of Brad Burrows who also assumed the Co-Executive Producer’s role with her. Anita handled the casting director duties. DP was Isaac Alongi, screenwriter Jefferson Donald and Technical Director/Editor was Craig Brown. 168 Film Project stretched her growth as a person, actress and gave more empathy to the roles that cast members and crew assume on a production shoot. She relished in the assumed tasks and honors of being the first Kansas City crew used by the California based festival. Even though their “Living Waters” film was not accepted as a finalist it has only stoked the “chi” and fire’s within her heart to do another production. An investor from Texas has contracted Anita to produce another short film, which has taken her into the realm she loves, pre-production and ” on set.”
