Emily's latest project, REPRESENT, has just been announced! REPRESENT is a new comedy webseries about the representation of women in film. It follows two actresses, Ellie and Tess, who get fed-up with the way they are treated as women in the film industry. They decide to make their own movie, one that flips around every gender stereotype you see on your screens. The problem is, they don't know how to do it. Yet.
Emily is the creator of REPRESENT; she wrote it, produced it, and will be directing several episodes. She also will be playing the lead role of Ellie. REPRESENT is partially based on Emily's own experiences as a woman in the film industry, and she can't wait to share such an important story.
