Emily Anderson


Emily Anderson is an award-winning filmmaker who started directing videos at art school where she was artist-in-residence for the Scottish Claymores, an NFL team based in Glasgow.

As Ogilvy’s first female in-house director, she spent eight years writing, producing, and directing documentaries, collaborating with global brands that sent her all over the world. When interviewing a Russian Oligarch whose bodyguard stood behind her with a gun, she decided to get into comedy.

With an infectious personality and unique view of the world, Emily captures life with authenticity, absurdity, and color. Her work has garnered nominations and awards including winning the ‘Next Exposure Grant’ at the Hamptons International Film Festival and being a SHOOT ‘New Director to Watch’ for her big wave surf film.

Clients include: Absolut, Adidas, ESPN, Ford, Holiday Inn, IBM, J.Crew, Lyft, Microsoft, Noom, Patagonia, RedBull, Spotify, UPS, and Walgreens.

When she’s not in production, she’s deck-handing on a commercial fishing boat, a hundred miles out at sea, getting paid in lobster.
