Anaid

Co-Founder // Director // Cinematographer 

 

An abstract painter from Morelos, Mexico, Anaid immigrated with her family to the U.S. when she was 12 years old. As soon as she was behind the camera, she knew she’d found a new passion and began teaching herself everything she could about film and video production, which then led her to study under seasoned professionals at the Santa Fe Community College's Film Program. 

 

Anaid’s endless curiosity and hunger for knowledge continues to drive her to learn and hone her craft using the camera as a lens for empowerment, creativity, and positive change. We all have a story to tell, and she wants to help you tell that story in a genuine and impactful way.
