Writer Biography - Anna Yeltchev

Anna was born in the Bay Area to Russian immigrants and because her parents spoke little English, she was given free range to explore various forms of entertainment and art without the restrictions of parental control buttons. Having unregulated exposure to channels such as HBO, Anna fell in love with all things TV and film. In high school, Anna's interest for writing grew as her inspiring English teacher of 3 years pushed her to not only analyze literature but also analyze film through the lens of the writer. This brought two of Anna's most beloved passion of writing and film together. While attending the University of Arizona, Anna solidified her interest in making writing a career by taking on creative writing as one of her minors. Upon graduating in December of 2016, Anna plans on working extremely hard to make her dreams working in TV/film a reality.

Writer Statement

This script has been an underlying idea of mine for a few years and I am so relieved to have finally put it on paper. I hope to incorporate elements and themes from shows such as The Young Pope, Mad Men, and The Sopranos within my own work.
