About Me

Emilie Batard is creatively conjoined from both her personal and professional life. Moving to the Philippines in 2009, Emilie immediately fell in love with the people and culture, setting out to capture all she could through multiple creative formats. Completing her Masters in Filmography from the University of the Philippines, she joined TBWA\SMP in 2014 as one of the original film directors in the production department.
With a background in journalism, Emilie has engaged in many projects from producing documentaries, viral videos, commercial content, analog photography, live reporting, and hand drawings. She brings a clever and witty angle to any work she does, capturing audiences through her charisma and definition. 
Emilie's passion arises from her curiosity in the stories behind the content, exploring the history, and networks of her subjects.
Emilie immerses herself in the creative spirit, and the best is surely to come.
