Monica H. Anderson
Monica Anderson is a founding co-owner of Black Watch Productions, Executive Producer and Creative Director/Director/Editor. Having started her career as a theatrical director/actor and professional photographer, Monica has slipped seamlessly into the world of film and video. She has helped shape the many reinventions and the ongoing evolution of Black Watch with the creativity, intelligence and energy she infuses into every situation.
Monica is a triple threat producer/director/editor and recently finished a landmark filmmaker attraction video commissioned by the State of New Jersey, which extolls the many virtues of shooting your project in the Garden State. She is equally at home producing Broadcast content or events and spots in the digital space, as well as writing, producing and directing award-winning Cause Marketing documentaries that raise the visibility of not-for-profit enterprises. Monica is well known for being an “actor’s director”, bringing out the best performances from celebrities, politicians, kids, non-actors and first-time performers.
Monica has helped move Black Watch into content creation, design editorial services, kid’s educational projects and documentaries, bringing her creative prowess to virtually any category that is served by expert video production, and making it possible for Black Watch to evolve and thrive in the New York area for over thirty years. Monica is currently directing the feature documentary "And So We Ride" which chronicles the stories of the riders and crew from our nearly 20-year involvement with the Braking AIDS Ride, an annual 3 Day/300-mile charity bicycle ride benefitting the HIV/AIDS services of Housing Works.
