Director Bio: Emily Whittingham
Emily is currently in her final year studying Animation at the University for the Creative Arts in Farnham, UK, where she is specialising in stop motion and puppet-making. Her first film, “Squabblin’ Spooks”, has been screened in four film festivals worldwide. “The Straw Man” is her second film, and has been screened at Doc Sunback Film Festival.
Emily is thrilled to be accepted into her first horror film festival, and hopes to pursue more creepy puppet-making in the future.
