About i say RAAR

i say RAAR is the artistic output of London based creative Emma Crouch.

Emma Crouch is a documentary filmmaker, producing, shooting and editing the majority of her films as a one-woman crew. Her practice is inspired by documenting and interpreting the spaces around her with a clear and distinctive voice.

Working mainly in the arts, charitable and education sectors, Emma looks to document projects and exhibitions which offer distinct voices or unique access into areas of art, heritage, education and community/global issues. She also works collaboratively with artists to help create work/commissions.

With a degree in Anthropology, Emma has a natural curiosity to explore the world around her, reinterpreting people's passions or specialist knowledge into a narrative that is accessible to a wider audience. From art/science projects on climate change to East End heritage exhibitions, and from new theatre writing to the Olympic cultural legacy, there is a story to be found in any subject.

Based in East London, Emma has been commissioned by a wide range of artists and organisations in both the public and private sector, with clients including UP Projects, Museum of London Docklands, Wayne McGregor Studio, Bow Arts, LLDC, SAWA, Phil Coy, Susan Aldworth, Leila McMillan, Joseph Coelho, Invisible Dust, The Legacy List, Pledge Music, Open University, Spread The Word, Shuffle Festival, Discover Children's Story Centre and Thames21. Emma has interviewed hundreds of people, including Turner Prize winning artists, leading scientists in their field, politicians, members of the public, celebrities, and entrepreneurs. Her films have been screened at many high profile events, venues and exhibitions, including Tate Modern, BFI London Film Festival, Museum of London, National Maritime Museum, Mayor of London's Business Dinner, Greenwich Royal Observatory, Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, View Tube, East Wintergardens, Cannes Lion, BAFTA, and Nunnery Gallery.

On International Women's Day 2017, Emma launched M├ętier, a new film and podcast series celebrating women and their work, with Gallery Director Rosie Murdoch.
