Director Biography - Bianca Francine Gantt

Bianca F. Gantt is a Writer and Producer from Wichita, Kansas. Combining her love for writing and a strong curiosity about people and society, she earned a BA in Sociology from The University of Missouri-Kansas City. Finding academic writing too rigid, Bianca created the blog Blackgirl Candidly, where she wrote about pop culture, entertainment, and personal growth. Though she has since shifted from the world of academia, Bianca’s creative works are still informed by her background in Sociology as they offer comedic takes on the social and political world. Her writing is also heavily influenced by her experience as a Black girl growing up in Kansas. As a freelance writer, Bianca pitched and wrote editorial pieces for the Kansas City-based digital and print magazine, By Design. Since moving to Los Angeles, she has written and produced the web-based comic and animated series The Adventures of Kiki & Annette. To deepen her knowledge of film production, she has worked on various sets as a Production Assistant. Bianca is currently writing and producing a documentary on Black fatherhood.

Director Statement

Growing up in what is arguably the golden age of Nicktoons and Cartoon Network, I've always had an affinity for animation. Through animation, there is no limitation on imagination. The only issue was, and still is, very few animated shows center Black girls and women. The world of adult animation is thriving, but the voice of Black women is absent. Kiki & Annette tells stories that are relatable to the masses but bring Black women front and center.
