I create emotionally driven stories.

Hailing from the bucolic English countryside, Emily Anderson has spent her career telling people’s stories, as an illustrator, creative director, and now filmmaker. She has cultivated long-standing relationships with clients such as IBM, where she recently created a much-awarded series of films profiling human stories behind the internet, and her recurring work for Philips has taken her around the world, directing documentaries that profile the brand’s innovation in numerous international communities. She was recognized as one of SHOOT magazine’s 2016 ‘New Directors to Watch’ and recently premiered her first narrative short at the Hamptons International Film Festival, where it won the Suffolk County Film Commission’s Next Exposure Grant.
