Emilia is a producer who occasionally moonlights as a production manager, marketing manager, graphic designer, and career provider of turkey dinosaurs on set. Before founding Four Eyes, she worked on nine theatre projects alongside her university degree; since then, she has produced several films and staged productions. She likes getting things done, has spreadsheets for breakfast, and enjoys being the assistant to every department.
Emilia can often be found fondly reminiscing about projects like The Threepenny Opera, while juggling Pillow Talk, The CHRYSALIS Project, and Beachhead. Having produced projects with budgets from £500 to £20,000 and teams of three to 70, she enjoys pushing the boundaries of 'low-budget' filmmaking to create innovative, provocative film and theatre which challenges and inspires its audiences.
