filmmaker. actor. writer.
Emma Thatcher is a Chicago-based filmmaker, actor, and photographer. After studying acting at NYU, she began producing, writing, directing, and editing short films. Her work focuses on intimate, humanistic stories through a unique lo-fi and micro-budget lens. She often utilizes improvisation on set so that the actors can bring their own voice to their characters. She's very grateful for her vibrant and inventive Chicago film community– which she'll be working with to shoot her first feature this Summer
