Emily is a filmmaker who strives to create playful work that doesn’t compromise on meaning.
With a sentimentality for the creativity of childhood, her films seek to reinvent; whether a client brief or creative stimulus, the ability to imagine the world differently is present throughout her work.
Emily's background in advertising has seen her work on a variety of projects, including the United Nations' Cannes Lion and D&AD award winning campaign, The People's Seat, as well as films for clients such as Net-a-Porter, Burt's Bees, and Universal Music.
She is currently commercially directing and in development on her first documentary short, West of Barbary; an exploration of the colonial gaze in British narrative fiction that seeks to question its impact on our 21st Century identities.
