About emily

I am a creator, filmmaker, and artist from Australia living in LA. I'm an Asian-Australian American. I started drawing when I was 3 years old and making films when I was 12 years old. I've been a professional storyboard artist since age 15. I have a BA degree from the University of Sydney in History Honours and English Major. I studied a BFA in Character Animation for two years at the California Institute of the Arts (CalArts), trained in Story at Pixar Animation Studios and worked in the Story Department at Warner Bros and Animal Logic on several feature animated films. I have worked as a story and visual consultant for live action and animated features and TV.

To see my list of credits please visit my IMDb.

I now Write, Direct and Executive Produce content for film and television under the new production banner, Grade 8 Productions.
