Emile Rafael’s passion for filmmaking and photography took root early on. Growing up in the bohemian landscape of Prague inspired a career as a director and photographer. Following a stint as a producer, Emile moved on to directing videos for the likes of Katy B, X Ambassadors, Jamie N Commons and Stubborn Heart.
His love for photography and documentary film heavily influences his voice as a director, pushing him to use visual adventure and human truth in equal measure. His video for MØ’s “Walk This Way” earned the trophy for Danish Music Video of the year in 2014. Emile was also shortlisted for the 2014 Next Director Awards with his Nowness short film profiling legendary writer Alan Moore, titled “His Heavy Heart”.
