"Compelling and unexpected, "Run" is a portrait of abuse in the home and ... a tribute to the necessity and power of human connection." - Omeleto
She wrote and directed YA monologue 'JACKSON' which has screened at Underwire (nominated Best Actor), Hollyshorts, IndieCork and more and was nominated for Best Short Film at BUFF Malmö, Sweden.
"(An audience is) left unsure what is fantasy and what is reality" - BUFF Malmö
Previously Emma wrote and directed coming of age micro short ‘LIT’, which won the Raindance Film Festival One Minute Heartache competition and was awarded Main Prize in Depict at Encounters Film Festival by a jury including Sorcha Bacon and Rachel Morrison ASC.
"Simple, brilliantly directed and economical, pinging a small arpeggio of emotional effects despite (or because of) its basic economy of means with some impressive performances from its young cast from a promising director that shows great potential.” - Sorcha Bacon
Emma’s commercial work includes spots for Speech & Language UK, Dove, Ecover and Barclays among many others. She carries her storytelling skills into her commercials, combining imaginative visual fair with nuanced and realistic performance.
"The emotional beats in the story...leave the audience with an ending message of hope." - Shots.net
She wrote and directed ‘100%’, a short romantic comedy sponsored by The Ritz-Carlton as part of their ‘The Stay’ series produced by Hearst. Her mentor during production was Mike Figgis. Shot in Ras Al Khaimah, UAE, '100%' won Best International Director at Houston Comedy Film Festival and Best Rom Com at Hollywood Comedy Short Film Festival.
"(A) clever take on the genre... turning a story that could have just been about romance into one that focused first and foremost on female friendship."
Emma studied Fine Art and before turning to directing had a successful career in fashion photography, shooting internationally for publications including The Face and The Sunday Times Magazine and brands including Boots and Marks & Spencer.
She is a member of BAFTA Connect, WFTV, Cinesisters and Director's UK and is part of the DUK Inspire Mentorship Scheme 2023/4.
