Interview with Director Amy Weber

Annabelle & Bear is the first feature I have worked on. So this is a first for me.

“Annabelle & Bear” premiere benefitting Starfish Family Services

Hail to the victors! That would be everybody connected to "Annabelle & Bear". The all-Michigan film produced, directed and co-written by Birmingham's Amy Weber  and her Radish Creative Group premiered Feb. 20 to a sold out crowd (1,300) at Detroit's Music Hall Center.
