Emory is a NYC-based auteur who focuses primarily on character-driven pieces, often working both behind and in front of the camera.
Emory grew up just a train ride away from NYC. Her proximity to such a vibrant, thriving metropolis piqued her interest in the arts. Throughout high school, Emory performed in numerous theatrical productions and wrote, directed, and starred in her own videos.
Emory is finishing up her degree in film and television production at NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts. In 2015, Emory created and starred in her own web series called Pants Role. The show was a hit, winning “Best Web Series” at the Fusion Film Festival.
Last year, Emory wrote, directed, and edited a short film entitled, “Changing of the Leaves.” The project won “Best Director” at the New York State Film Festival, “Best Actress” at the Milan Online Film Festival, and the coveted “Audience Award” at the Wallabout Film Festival. The film also received awards in screenwriting, production design, and original score at NYU’s New Visions & Voices Film Festival. Emory was recently interviewed about the piece for wearemovingstories.com.
Emory just finished shooting her thesis film and passion project, “The Perfect Fit.” She hopes to get the finished film on the festival circuit by June.
Most recently, Emory’s first feature screenplay was chosen to be a finalist at Fusion Film Festival 2017. She is in the process of writing her second.
Emory strives to tell more stories about complex, fascinating women. With every project, she is doing just that.
