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 a recent graduate of the Maurice Kanbar Institute of Film & TV at NYU 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.
Two years ago, 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.
This summer, Emory directed and edited a music video for R&B/soul artist, Bette Smith. The video, “Manchild,” premiered on Billboard.com and has acquired over 26,000 views on YouTube.
Emory has just completed her thesis film and passion project, “The Perfect Fit.” The film has already been named an Official Selection of the Miami Independent Film Festival, Oxford Film Festival, Back in the Box Competition, and WAMMFest.
Emory strives to tell more stories about complex, fascinating women. With every project, she is doing just that.
