MY NAME'S EMILY
I'm 29, live in Manchester, and work as a Freelance Creative Producer.
I specialise in producing documentary style film, branded content and music-led fashion commercials.
My career started in radio after graduating from Sheffield University with an English degree and a Masters in Broadcast Journalism. Soon after leaving uni I spent time working between Manchester and London as a music journalist before moving into producing television commercials. Over that time I’ve led teams to feel inspired and motivated to deliver great results and find meaning in what they do.
My proudest achievements to date include: being commissioned by Ticketmaster UK to produce my idea for doc film series, Homecoming; having my own column at The Guardian, New Band Up North, broadcasting the music news on BBC Radio 6 Music and being awarded the Scott Trust Bursary from The Guardian to complete my Masters.
What's most important to me when working with my team and clients is that everyone feels good about the content we're creating. I'm a dedicated, honest and calm person in life and at work. This attitude has been essential when shooting summer commercials in the rain, closing roads on hairpin blind bends and making sure your talent doesn’t suffocate when the director wants to encase them in giant plastic sheets for a music video (paramedic on set, no one died, results look great, look).
I am also Creative Director and Co-Founder of Matter of Sound. A collective of talented filmmakers, producers and editors making content about music and culture across the UK. Born in 2014 as a YouTube channel to showcase Manchester and its music scene, we now operate as a creative collective producing promo content for labels, event companies, bands and festivals.
As well as producing, I work as a Lifestyle and Mindset Coach through my wellbeing business Matter Of Mind My drive to help people has also led me to work with the organisation Girls Out Loud, who work with teenager girls across the North West. I run workshops, events and talks with them across the North West, to inspire and empower the next generation of girls.
