Ana Christian is from North Carolina, but relocated to Chicago after getting her undergrad at Notre Dame (2014) and Masters of Cinema Arts at DePaul University (2018). She met her husband and business partner Ryan Stemple in 2018, and they were married in 2023, while at the same time establishing Journeywork Entertainment … a “marrying” of Ryan’s QUICKSILVER COLOR and Ana’s ANACHRONY POST. Ana’s recent editor credits include 2023’s “Good Guy with a Gun” and “Reporting for Christmas,” and the upcoming “Single Car Crashes.” She wrapped filming recently on her first solo directing project, the short film “Baby.”
