About Ana Corrie

Change and innovation – that’s what drives my work. I am fascinated by what they represent: human imagination, achievement, possibilities for how we evolve, creativity; the ability to see problems differently, and thus find solutions others cannot see.

As a way of giving you a picture of me using archetypes: I am a cross-breed between a hunter and a farmer. These archetypes are demonstrated in me with the following behaviours:

As a farmer: I am an attentive cultivator – careful, methodical, sensitive of the needs of others, linear – what leads to what in a much distant future. I love taking care of details.

As a hunter: I am a risk-taker, I am flexible, capable of changing strategy on a moment’s notice. I love to go out into the world and negotiate new opportunities, bring in new financing, open new divisions, etc.

I am passionate about cross functional teams, agile workflows, and new technologies.

Fluent in English and Spanish. Conversational in Italian.

Innovation-Go! Ltd., Founder and Director

We are a start-up edutainment media company with a life-long commitment to empowering teens of diverse backgrounds by giving them out-of-the-box educational experiences about the world and the extent of their potential – we develop edutainment experiences across feature films, virtual reality experiences, TV series, books, gaming and much more.

My background and experience:

  1. I grew up in Venezuela, and speaking of what drives me in my work, the fact that I grew up in Venezuela was quite a big influence, in the sense that Venezuela is a very intense place where conflict is at the forefront of your life, and as a kid it is something I became aware very quickly. It is a very extreme place, and I can recognise how that would have influenced my obsession with change and innovation. I could see there was a world beyond my world. My world was narrow and problematic, the world outside filled with possibilities. So, I turned the table, and went after my dreams. I left Venezuela at 19, with $100 and came to England. I found my way and later with the help of my parents and scholarships, this helped me earn a degree in Film & Animation production. After university I worked in London for Endemol Shine UK as an assistant film editor. I continued my journey as a media producer and travelled the world for more work opportunities. But it was a deeper understanding of ‘how to live’ that I was really after. In my need to expand and grow I have been exposed to invaluable diversity and ideas.
  2. My strength lies in how I connect ideas, and my process of discovery and strategy holds up every project I develop. I have spent years reading philosophy, reading poetry, reflecting on my learning, making art, making relationships, thinking about humanity, about the current world we live in. And it is here where I can add something new.
  3. I am technically experienced in film production, as well as adept at project management of media projects with UK-based and overseas production companies and consultants. 
  4. My #1 obsession is planning. I love planning and project charters.
  5. Two project examples (I am the project creator (founder + lead), researcher, and story developer for both):

My most valuable asset:

– I support the open and respectful exchange of ideas.

– I do not hide from my own failures or scorn the failures of others.

– I trust each other: to own our work, to always seek excellence, to reach beyond our past achievements.

– I believe in creating a safe, generous, accepting workplace where people can be their authentic, best selves.

– I wholeheartedly share what I know with anyone who wants to explore and contribute.

– I prize introspection and action equally.

– I believe in technology and its potential to accelerate human achievement.

When I’m not working, you can catch me meditating, reading, mentoring and receiving mentorship, discussing ideas, meditating more, serving my community, listening to podcasts, spending time with my loved ones, and always, always: working on myself. I take 100% responsibility for my life and for the quality of my experiences.
