Artwork Tour – Emma Plunkett

Watch as Emma meticulously lights and films a selection of her artwork, presenting it as beautifully as possible, while telling you the inspiration behind it. This video contains a compilation of footage taken at exhibitions and from studio shoots. You can listen to Emma’s insights and take a glimpse inside her new art studio. You could see this video as a type of serving suggestion, as to how the artwork could be exhibited in a gallery or an art lovers collection. Emma’s artwork is varied, spanning across different art materials and subjects, though she tends to concentrate on the female form, from the experience of being female. She hasn’t been able to include everything, though this should give you a good taster!

Wes Somerville – Light Sculptures

This film is about artist Wes Somerville. Emma pinned Wes down to talk about his light sculptures and explain his creative process – through a series of interview questions, he explains (in detail) his inspiration and demonstrates how he makes his light sculptures. We get to see under the bonnet of his artwork, as he articulates beautifully where his artwork stems from. Emma filmed him in his art studio and in numerous gallery settings. Wes and Emma have been exhibiting alongside each other for a number of years, during which time Emma has been collecting footage of Wes’s art. She suggested that Wes invest in an edit, so he can easily illustrate the complexities of his artwork to his wider audience. Please contact Wes for commissions – his email is at the end of the video.

Art exhibition video

Emma Plunkett made this video to promote a group art exhibition – the artwork is casually filmed (without a tripod), in an elegant art gallery setting. She developed the voice over, on the fly, from several takes of speaking freely about things that are relevant to the show and to the art world in general. She cut the pertinent points into the film and then wrote a transcript from it. Emma then recorded the whole voice over again, to give it a fluid feel.


The Pocket Oxford Theatre Company brings Shakespeare to schools. Emma has worked with this theatre company for many years, doing live video projections as well as documenting performances. The challenge in this film was to make a short 4-minute film from an hour-long play – filming from just two live performances. She took a long shot of the whole stage from the first performance. From the second performance, she and a second camera person shot the close-ups from either side of the stage. Capturing the action in close -up was a challenge, keeping one eye on the camera and one on where the performers might tread next.

Work wise

Work wise is a film that was devised, filmed and edited by Emma Plunkett. Originally it was made up from quotes by members of staff, for a corporate conference, with the theme: ninja’s.

She later decided to adapt the film slightly, by adding her own choice of quotes. This is so she can demonstrate to you the possibilities of her film making in this portfolio. Imagine having a custom made video for your event – with your team’s quotes…

The Sugar Factory Art Exhibition

Emma Plunkett filmed and edited this very short showreel of a 50 person art exhibition, that she and Jan Pozivil organised. The setting is the stunning venue of the Sugar Factory Pilar of Motril, Granada, Spain. Here are a few highlights from the spectacular 3 week exhibition. Music by Xian Ra.

La Finca del Castillo Arabe

Emma created this HD video to advertise all the qualities of this boutique hotel on Trip Adviser. She interviewed the guests and owners alike, in order to draw out the many facets of this idyllic, award winning country house hotel – set in deepest rural Andalucia. The video illustrates how the hotel offers bespoke stays among the olive and citrus groves of the idyllic El Valle de Lecrín. Watch the delicious food being served from the professional Casa Amelia kitchen. Stunning panoramic views are visible from all its spacious suites. Guests can relax and soak up the tranquility of the location and its beautiful facilities or drive to the unspoiled beaches of the Costa Tropical, the mountain villages of the Alpujarra or to the many cultural experiences of the city of Granada.

Angus Watt – artist film

Emma Plunkett made this short artist film to go on the website of artist Angus Watt. Angus provided clips from his personal archive, from over his long career as a flag installation artist. Emma interviewed Angus, scripted the voice-over and edited the footage, sometimes using clips she’d filmed herself of his flags in action.

PaSEaR – art film

This is an epic art film by Charely Case – commissioned by Sala Parpalló, Diputación de Valéncia. Emma created a version of the film that rotates in a circle, that was projected from the ceiling into a concrete concave sphere in their gallery. The content of the film is the culmination of many years of Charley filming, drawing and photographing from around the world. Charley collaborated with Emma Plunkett to bring the whole film to life in a single edit. Emma brought all her filmmaking expertise to the edit – sometimes layering, sometimes animating and sometimes helping with the storytelling.
