Anna graduated from the University of Michigan with a degree in math, and went on to the most logical career: professional jazz trumpet player. After two cds, being featured on United Airlines, and touring Brazil, she moved to Boston to learn computer science. While working as a software engineer for 3M, Raizlabs, Techstars, and various startups, she pursued independent filmmaking in her off-hours, directing eight short films.
After receiving an amazing thriller-romance script (about two characters trapped in their apartment during a zombie-alien apocalypse who fall in love over a dinner of chocolate), she brokered a deal with Equal Exchange to sponsor the series. The goal was to reach 100,000 views in 10 months; the series got over 150,000 views in the first week. And that was the beginning of ZoomTilt.
Growing up, Chris struggled for attention and acceptance within his immensely creative and artistic family. While siblings and cousins toed the straight line doing conservative, regular stuff like acting in commercials, writing scripts and putting on plays, Chris dared to break the mold and keep it real with edgy gigs at under-the-radar spots like Goldman Sachs. Now, with ZoomTilt, not only can Chris juggle quantifiable, creative responsibilities like digital distribution, UX and user acquisition, but he also finally gets hugs at family holidays.
"I can't express how happy I am to be working with the awesome team at ZoomTilt," says Bryan. "I believe that effective storytelling is central to our culture and existence as human beings; everyone can look back and pinpoint a book, play, movie, or even campfire story that changed the way they act or think about life. Having a part in helping brands and filmmakers tell great stories is what gets me fired up to work at ZoomTilt." In addition to loving a good visual story, Bryan enjoys biking, frisbee golf, new foods, and of course, beer. Contact Bryan

In the beginning there were no ZoomTilt interns. Then came Lily. Then came greatness and a bevy of new ZoomTilt blog posts. Somewhere in between all that we learned what the word "bevy" meant, and that's just the way we like it.
