First Look: Sex Education’s Emma Mackey in Emily
Scaling Wuthering Heights to capture imagery of a stunning location & cast for Frances O’ Connor’s feature debut about young Emily Brontë.
I’ve had a dream commission come in recently, combining my love of drama and working with actors, with my equal delight in spending as much time as possible outdoors.
Thanks to Piers Tempest and co at Tempo Productions, and Hugo Grumbar at Embankment, I’ve been heading out to the moorland wilds of Yorkshire, to shoot 10 days of stills on Frances O’Connor’s feature debut, from her own script about the early life of Emily Brontë Emily.
The ‘first look’ still was shot ten days ago, and released last week, showing Sex Education star Emma Mackey as Emily Brontë on a sunset hillside, and gained a lot of traction – we even made Vogue!
I’m returning to Yorkshire to shoot more stills for Tempo/Embankment, plus the poster campaign for UK distributors Warner Brothers.
Plenty MOOR to come, then…
I’ve taken the opportunity to camp while on set, to really immerse myself in the film. And toast marshmallows over an open fire, obviously
