Emily's music is regularly used for films and documentaries, extracts from her CD productions and works are represented in various library music companies.
As a session 'cellist working on film scores, recent achievements include her multitrack 'cello performance on BAFTA-nominated director Gary Tarne's acclaimed film "The Prophet" and Terry Flaxton's new film "To Stand and Stare" where she watched the film and responded with improvised 'cello.
