Emily Freda Sharp is a Director who strives to create playful work that doesn’t compromise on meaning. Born and based in London, her portfolio speaks for itself as to the importance it places on inclusive representation, both in front and behind the camera. With a formative training in dance, she brings to the screen a kinetic musicality, most notable through her choreographic camera work and synchronised editing style. Emily's background in advertising has seen her work on a variety of projects, including the United Nations' Cannes Lion and D&AD award winning campaign, The People's Seat, as well as films for clients such as Net-a-Porter, Burt's Bees, and J.W. Anderson. She is currently commercially directing at Whalar from the safety of home, and on weekends can be found creating 'B-Movies' inspired by her favourite films to help stave off isolation. https://www.instagram.com/emilyfredasharp/Locked Pro Plan feature
