Emma Thompson has been in the Australian Advertising industry for over 20 years, producing a huge range of multi faceted campaigns which have been recognised in Award festivals around the world including, Cannes Lions, Spikes, D&AD, Award, Axis, Ciclope and LIA.

Emma is currently Head of Production at Photoplay Films, one of Australia’s top 5 production companies where she heads up a team of talented producers & directors producing integrated campaigns for a number of major brands including NAB, KPMG, Airbnb, McDonald’s, Audi, BMW, NRMA, Telstra and Toyota amongst many others. Her work spans Film, TV, Digital, Content, Experiential, VR & stills.

Before joining Photoplay Emma had a long freelance career that took her around the world and included work on advertising, documentary, TV and feature films working alongside some of the worlds best production companies and directors. That depth of experience has taught her to be as comfortable producing high end VFX as she is with a small doco crew traipsing through the jungles of PNG. Over the course of her career Emma has come to recognise the power, skill and beauty in storytelling across all mediums, which is why she still maintains enormous passion for her craft.
