I'm a film director and creative producer. A trained classical cellist, I enjoying projects that intersect music, live action or animated film, visual art, and other artistic disciplines. I like to bend genres and break new technical ground, frequently engaging with new forms of digital and analogue film technique to impart my work with a unique artistic identity. I speak the language of many artistic and technical disciplines, frequently directing projects that interface film, music and technology in new ways.

My clients include the Calgary Philharmonic Orchestra, The National Arts Centre (Canada), The University of Calgary and the Canadian Heart and Stroke foundation. I’ve produced music videos for Grammy award winning and Juno nominated artists and composers like Dame Evelyn Glennie and Vincent Ho, for which I've received awards nationally and internationally.

"I am always looking for original voices that will distinguish our creative projects. Emil is the type of distinctive creator I enjoy working with. His work looks and feels ‘different’ without being quirky or contrived. His films speak eloquently and clearly in a sophisticated but natural manner. They make me pay attention."

- Paul Dornian, President & CEO, The Calgary Philharmonic Orchestra
