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 currently studying film and television production at New York University. 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 Student Short Film” at the Direct Short Online 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. It will screen at the New York State Film Festival this spring.

Emory just finished shooting her thesis film and passion project, “The Perfect Fit.” The story follows a determined young actress who gets the opportunity to audition for the role her mother originated on Broadway. When tensions arise between the two, the girl must decide whether to play by her mother’s rules or her own. Emory hopes to get the finished film on the festival circuit by June.

Most recently, Emory’s first feature screenplay was chosen as a finalist at the 2017 Fusion Film Festival. She is in the process of writing her second.

Emory strives to tell more stories about complex, fascinating women.

She is doing just that.
