Trained at the Polish National Film School, Emma combines a European approach to directing with an awareness of genre and style gained from over ten years experience making programmes for the UK and world television markets. What unites her films is a commitment to entertainment, beautiful imagery and an empathy with the people in her stories.

She is often employed as a director on a first series to help create the look of a show, and as producer/director she develops and oversees series from original idea to finished programme.

Emma is also an experienced director of corporate films, especially on educational issues for companies like Straker Films and Pukka Films.

Emma has taught direction, screenwriting and acting at Bristol and Bournemouth Universities, and the University of West London and is currently a lead tutor and course designer at the Met Film School in London.
