The trailer for Emily's comedy web series, REPRESENT, has officially been released!
Emily wrote, produced, and starred in REPRESENT, a comedy series about two actresses, Ellie and Tess, who struggle with being women in the film industry. After a day of particularly trying auditions, Ellie and Tess decide to write and produce their own film: a multi-genre movie that takes the stereotypes that face each gender in the industry, and flips them around. There's only one problem: they have never made a movie themselves and have no idea how to do it. Yet.
REPRESENT will be hitting the film festival circuit starting this summer! Watch the trailer below!
Emily is currently being featured on the website for Cora, a company that delivers menstrual hygiene products, and on the Phenomenal Woman Action Campaign email newsletter. Cora recently partnered with Phenomenal Woman for their "Equality, Period" campaign. The campaign is using all the proceeds from the "Equality, Period" t-shirt Emily is wearing to support the organizations ZanaAfrica, He For She, and the GirlUp Campaign. These organizations and charities help provide girls and women all over the world with period products that they otherwise wouldn't have access to, causing them to miss school and creating a culture of shame around their bodies' natural processes. Emily is proud to support these organizations that believe that every girl and woman deserves an education and a life free of period shame. Please visit the Cora website to order your own "Equality, Period" t-shirt!
