I create emotionally driven stories.

Hailing from the bucolic English countryside, NYC-based director Emily Anderson studied Sculpture at the Glasgow School of Art. Since moving to NYC, she has spent her career telling people’s stories in a variety of other mediums. Her versatility is evident in the breadth of her work; equally comfortable directing actors and celebrities, as she is real people and kids. A natural storyteller, the constant in all her work is her commitment to provoking genuine emotion and creating cinematic imagery to match. Her recurring work for Philips has taken her around the world, where she has created films that profile the brand’s innovation in numerous international communities. She was recognized as one of SHOOT magazine’s 2016 ‘New Directors to Watch.’ Her first commercial was for adult urinary incontinence pads.  Her goal is to be the first female director of a James Bond film. She’s developing her work towards feature length narrative films and is excited about the journey ahead.

The Usual is a creative team with a penchant for culture and the outdoors. We specialize in smart, irreverent branded content. Living year-round in Montauk, we saw how the beach town brought some of NYC’s most interesting creatives out for the weekends to surf, relax, and make work. We decided to explore these personalities through a limited edition newsprint publication. We chose newsprint because it wasn’t precious – something people could easily read while having a lazy Saturday at the beach. We called ourselves “The Usual” because our mission was to be anything but that – exploring the unusual stories and people that make the “drinking village with a fishing problem” so vibrant and special. Remind us to tell you about the time Yasha uncovered that Sea Monkeys were invented in Montauk by the first Jewish member of the KKK. Since we began in 2011, we’ve expanded into a boutique creative agency to help clients translate their vision through an authentic lens. We work across a variety of platforms including print, video, web, events and social media, specializing in smart, irreverent branded content.
