Emily Isaacs is a multi award-winning producer, writer and director originally from the West End, London.
She was raised as a successful professional child model and actress, modelling for Lord Snowden, Butterkist, top knitwear companies, Birds Trifle, and first acting at the BBC, then at the Coliseum Theatre with the ENO. After her parents moved the family to Eastbourne, she started training in literature and drama, but ended up studying Music at Trinity College of Music, London.
Returning to Eastbourne, she was a 'cello teacher for fifteen years, but a chronic illness caused her to be house and bed bound for five years, so she returned to her first love of literature and drama and completed an English Literature degree, mostly from her bed, still working part-time.
After recovering, she started working full-time again, and in 2017 she joined Drop Dead Films to manage the production of '13 Graves'. In 2018, she was included in the 'Yes She Cannes' awareness campaign for women in film at the Cannes Film Festival. In 2019, she completed a MA in Cultural and Creative Industries at Sussex University, just as '13 Graves' was released.
2020 saw the start of online creative content company, Scriptworks Productions Ltd. In its first year, they created two short films, started a Patreon project, completed two commercial projects, started a podcast, and optioned her tv pilot script, Diamond Alice.
She lives in Eastbourne with her husband and two children (both have Autism, ADHD and attend special schools), and she has two older children at college and university.
