BA (Hons) Media Production
My name is Freya Emmerson, I am a Producer and Documentary film maker. I produced "The Funeral," as well as fulfilling other main roles such as Assistant Director and Production Designer. The Funeral is about three siblings who lose their estranged father, and whilst they try and pay their respects, some still hold grudges towards him for leaving, and others are just pure hopeless. The Funeral addresses the taboo topics using dark humour, but still addressing the raw emotions stereotypically shown during such days. it also highlights that strong family relationships can get you through even the toughest days. The short film was created from the inital script to final cut in four months, and was made with a small crew of just 7 people.
As a Documentary filmmaker, I am currently in the early stages of making a feature length film called "Please Do Not Touch", it highlights both the verbal and physical sexual assault that women face in their everyday lives. I strive to educate everybody on behaviour that is acceptable, and to create a voice for victims to show they do not have to suffer alone.
