About Emma

An award winning Producer, Director & Strategist working for Foreign Correspondent at the ABC. I’m a creative geek who specialises in digital projects that use innovative technology to push the boundaries of storytelling. Most recently I launched interactive documentary, Freedom Riders in 2016 which was nominated for a UN Peace Award.

I’ve worked across a broad range of broadcast, online and mobile projects for production companies, broadcasters, and commercial and government organisations. My experience and breadth of knowledge gives me a unique understanding of Australian audiences and their digital expectations.

I have the experience to manage large-scale teams or work autonomously to storyboard, shoot and edit stories to produce content for audiences across screens. Along with directing and producing stories, I have successfully developed complicated platform and content strategy to clients and colleagues at an executive level.

KEY ACHIEVEMENTS
• Eight years experience developing strategy for clients including; SBS, ABC, YouTube, BigPond, Hopsctoch (Philomena & Divergent), Foxtel, MLA, CJZ, Sydney Festival, Trop Fest, Art Gallery of NSW, AIME and Bondi Rescue.
• Success engaging audiences across platforms for film, TV & radio with multiplatform storytelling techniques and distribution methods.
• Extensive understanding of trends, methodologies and analytic tools.
• Australian first use of video platform, Verse. (Freedom Riders 2016)
• World first use of Beamly (2nd screen App - Secrets & Lies 2014)
• Australian first FaceBook Connect content experience for Dreamworld.
• Regular speaker and industry contributor at conferences and lectures.

AWARDS
• Nominated for UN Peace Award for Best Online Documentary, Freedom Riders.
• Winner of SPAA’s Best Interactive Production of the year for Secrets & Lies.
• Winner of SPAA‘s Emerging Producer of the year 2013.
