After winning an award at the Milan Fashion Film Festival for her short film “Blue and You”, Emma explored a diverse set of projects, ranging from commercial work for ASOS, Dutch Design Week and Vogue to short films and music videos, the latest of which being the viral sensation "PYNK", and her contribution to Janelle Monae’s ’emotion picture’ Dirty Computer. Emma is currently working on her first feature film, and is successfully juggling projects in fashion, music and fiction.
