With a Bachelor of Commerce degree from Deakin University of Australia, Emma is a market research specialist with a strong background in qualitative research. Her early experiences at Kantar TNS, paired with her role as an associate director at Kantar Millward Brown paved her pathway into the world of business consulting, giving Emma the opportunity to work with clients across the globe – from the US, to Europe and Asia. Despite her strong analytical and organisational background, Emma took a jump in 2015 by joining a production agency, challenging her knowledge and capabilities. Here, she developed an interest in the creative industry (both commercial and film), cultivating a keen eye for new market opportunities. She eventually became one of the pioneers of ACE Pictures, setting up offices both in Malaysia and the US, where she now handles business affairs and leads its day to day operations.
Within just 2 years and a small handful of team members, Ace Pictures has established itself as a notable force, gaining respect from the industry and Hollywood. To date (2019), ACE Pictures has produced and financed a total of 8 film projects, with 4 films receiving notable recognition in prestigious film festivals around the world. These films have also been picked up by independent distributors.
