Immediate Vision Productions
Immediate Vision Productions (IVP) merges theatre and film to create new and exciting projects for film and television. Anne Marie Cummings, founder and producer of IVP, has received four-time Daytime Emmy nominations as an actress/writer/director and a Best Director award from the Indie Series Awards. She has spent the past twenty-five years involved in the theatre (as an actress, playwright, director, artistic director, and producer), and after moving to Los Angeles in 2016, she moved to a new track to take the very best of everything she knows about the stage and apply it to the screen with engaging one-takes where the camera movement is continuous with highly choreographed movements.
