About Your Host

Emily Precious and Lizzie Brown joined forces at UK production company Bird Flight Films in 2018 after together producing CARMILLA, the debut from writer/director Emily Harris starring Jessica Raine, Greg Wise, and Tobias Menzies which will be in UK cinemas in Spring 2020 distributed by Altitude and Republic in the UK, Film Movement in the US. They are also the UK Production Service Producers for Frank Marshall’s upcoming BEE GEES documentary with White Horse Pictures and Kief Davidson’s new doc THE ART FORGER.

Prior to Bird Flight, Emily worked for Fred Films (run by former Ealing Studios’ MD, James Spring), as Head of Production/Associate Producer. Emily was a key in turning a new company into a wheelhouse of production. In its first two years, Fred consulted on two features (THE COLONY, BREATHE),then between 2016-2019, Fred lead-produced 6 features (CROOKED HOUSE, FINDING YOUR FEET, PATRICK, FISHERMAN’S FRIENDS, COME AWAY, BLITHE SPIRIT) and exec produced 3 seasons of DARK MATTER for SyFy and Netflix. Emily’s freelance production credits span film and documentary including Ron Howard’s PAVAROTTI and BEATLES documentaries, ROCKS, ANTHROPOID, THE MAN WHO KNEW INFINITY and KIDS IN LOVE. Emily read History at Lady Margaret Hall, University of Oxford.
