About me

Gemma is commercial director and filmmaker whose work is typified by striking, memorable imagery with a strong emphasis on storytelling and performance. Born and raised in Scotland, she emigrated to Australia in her early twenties, earning a master’s degree in filmmaking from the prestigious Victorian College of the Arts. After early success in music videos and short films, she began her advertising career quickly attracting work from Australia’s top agencies and brands. Gemma creates work that is visually dynamic, contemporary and emotionally-driven. Several of Lee’s short films have also enjoyed notable success. Her 2010 short The Wake, which starred Angus Sampson (Insidious), screened at the Tribeca Film Festival and won the SBS Award for Best Film at Australia’s St. Kilda Film Festival. She is currently developing the feature film Blackwood.
