Fine Art trained, Emma Miranda Moore came to directing via photography. For ten years she shot fashion for clients including The Face, Red, The Guardian and The Sunday Times Magazine.
Her narrative short film work has screened internationally and has been selected for Aesthetica Short Film Festival, Encounters Film Festival, Underwire Film Festival and Sheffield Doc/Fest, among many others.
Emma wrote and directed coming of age micro short Lit which won the Raindance Film Festival #1minuteheartache competition and was awarded the main prize in DepicT '19 at Encounters Film Festival by a jury including Sorcha Bacon and Rachel Morrison ASC.
“Simple, brilliantly directed and economical, pinging a small arpeggio of emotional effects despite (or because of) its basic economy of means with some impressive performances from its young cast from a promising director who shows great potential.” - DepicT '19 jury on Lit
Emma’s comedy script about female friendship was selected from over 500 to form part of 'The Stay' project sponsored by Ritz-Carlton and produced by Hearst. She directed the resulting short, 100%, in Ras Al Khaimah, UAE. It won Best International Director at Houston Comedy Film Festival and was lensed by Kate Reid BSC.
'What made EMM's script stand out was her clever take on the genre, winning the judges over by turning a story that could have just been about romance into one that focused first and foremost on female friendship.' - Catherine Jarvie, Hearst on 100%

From high end fashion to roller derby, UN campaigns to skin care Emma is skilled at working with performers and non-performers of all kinds - be they athletes or actors, influencers or kids.
