Hi, y'all! Emily here!
My first announcement here is a change in the voice of my news post! When I started this website, I though that writing in the third person made me sound more professional. But now I've decided that I want another way for you to get to know me as a person - through my writing voice! So, from now on, this will be a first-person account of my professional wins. Mainly in service of being able to be true to how THOROUGHLY excited I am about my life, always.
Of course, it's only natural that my first gig in LA is creating a weird and wonderful piece that calls out and takes down the white hetero-patriarchal establishment *shrug emoji*. I'm so thrilled to be working with such awe-inspiring artists, and I still can't wrap my brain around the fact that I'm being paid to do this. What more could a girl want?
Dramatis Personae will be performing next weekend, February 16 and 17, at JOAN Los Angeles. More information about the performance can be found on the JOAN website. If you're in LA, I hope to see you there!
REPRESENT, the web series that Emily wrote and stars in, has just received its first film festival acceptance (excluding script and trailer selections)! Episode 1x06, titled "The Patriarchy F*cks Up Everything," has been selected as a semi-finalist at the Los Angeles Cinefest! Watch this space for more news as REPRESENT makes its way through the festival circuit!
Recess, a short film that Emily co-wrote with frequent collaborator Marissa Vonn, is in consideration for the RODE Reel Short Film Competition! The synopsis of the film reads: "Recess follows Joy Barnes [Emily Ann Scott] as she waits...and waits...and waits on the verdict of a court proceeding that will change her and her young daughter's life." Recess is available to watch now on the RODE website, and you can even vote for it for the audience award! Please watch the film below, then click here to vote for Recess!
