Hey, I'm Anna!

Manhasset, New York

Meet the Producer

My name is Anna Abbanat and I am the Producer for the Bachelor of Fine Arts film, "When the Wolf Comes Home." As the Producer of this short film, I oversee all aspects of scheduling, budgeting, and planning for this film. "When the Wolf Comes Home" will be the fourth major Emerson film project that I have produced.

I am a junior at Emerson College in Boston, MA, which is where I met my close friend and the director, Nicole Rinaldi. This film is of personal interest to me because she recently lost her uncle as a result of mental illness and is interested in pursuing a project that deals with family struggles and complications revolving around a family member's battle with depression.

Nicole and I work very well together and I cannot wait to get on set with Nicole and see the whole process, that we've been working hard to complete, really tie together!


Meet the Director

My name is Nicole Rinaldi, a long time resident of Manhasset (Class of 2016) and currently enrolled at Emerson College. This Summer, I will be filming my BFA Thesis Film, “When the Wolf Comes Home,” in Manhasset, NY. The B.F.A. program at Emerson only accepts the top 10% of student filmmakers within the college to work on a project close to them for a year and I was lucky enough to have my project selected.
