Offering one to one movement coaching to screen actors. Enabling an actor to explore the physical heritage of a character and the environment that surrounds them, Emily uses knowledge of body language and physical intention to find naturalistic character movement that can communicate over screen. This includes developing an actor’s coordination and proprioception before supporting them to interrogate and discover physical characteristics.
Previous screen work includes:
MAGIC MIKE FINAL DANCE, Bastilles' SHUT OFF THE LIGHTS music video, short film ENTANGLEMENT & delivering naturalistic movement for screen to MA Screen Actors at Royal Central School of Speech and Drama.
