My name is Emily and I’m a 26 year old small, excitable, easy going chap, who is motivated and extremely determined when approaching any given project. I enjoy meeting new people from all walks of life and thrive in a busy environment.

I am currently working as an editor at Silverback on short-form content related to the Our Planet series. This involves putting together animal behaviour sequences with VO, longer form conservation pieces and social cuts for Facebook and Instagram. I have most recently been working on a mini-series of character-led 5 minute docs for World Economic Forum, focussing on sustainable practices around the world. These are narrative, interview based pieces which look at sustainable ways to help save our planet.

Before this I was in East Africa for a year where I was self-shooting and editing a variety of exciting projects. Before I left the UK, I was working freelance as an editor for various production companies and agencies including Jamie Oliver Productions, Buzzfeed, Canada London, P.G. Commercial, Burning Reel and CHI & Partners. The work ranged from editing short-form documentaries and features to commercials, fashion promos and music videos. Recently, a feature I edited picked up an award at the London International Short Film Festival and Manhattan International Film Festival. It focussed on the British Paraorchestra, a group of disabled musicians based in Bristol who teamed up with the Birmingham Symphony Orchestra to perform at a concert which celebrated inclusion and collaboration.
