Ann Rose (she/her/hers) is a renaissance producer and editor with a background in development, production and post-production. She has built her career bridging the gaps between cinematic documentary programs and compelling unscripted television, between journalistic reportage and branded entertainment, and between traditional and evolving content platforms.
She has spent 10+ years at television networks with strong brand identity and prestige--Sundance TV and BBC America, and has worked extensively in the independent film and television communities as well as in the commercial world. She pursues daring stories and embraces a craft-driven, collaborative production model.
In 2016, Ann and 5 of her producer friends formed the Documentary Producers Alliance, to tackle some fundamental disconnects we saw in the industry that prevent independent documentary producing from being a sustainable career. She brought her experience with the DPA to the Alliance of Documentary Editors, an organization with a similar mission in the field of editing, to educate the industry on sustainable labor practices for documentary editors.
When Ann is not making videos, tv shows and films, she makes other things, like soap, in her house in upstate New York.
