Filmed in 2011, Anyone is a feature film directed by Kelly Griffin and Written by Scott McEntire, Kelly Griffin and Christian Neil.  

"Whether you are single, married, or somewhere in between, Anyone deals with the relationships faced by 30-somethings in today's society. Is my soul mate out there? Is there any such a thing as a soul mate? Do I still know this person with whom I've shared breakfast each day for the last nine years? As with real life, some people grow while others revert, and Anyone attempts to show all of that by tapping into all emotions."

Anyone had a successful Festival run and would pick up Best Picture at Jamfest Indie Film Festival.
