#85 | Emer Kinsella | Composer

On this week’s ep of FNI Wrapchat is Irish Film Composer based in Los Angeles Emer Kinsella.

PBL had a lovely chat with Emer about the differences between large and small scale productions, Living in LA as an Irish person, working to get by and her love of her craft.

Emer Kinsella is a film composer, classically-trained experimental violinist and songwriter from Dublin, Ireland. Emer is known for her textural and minimal introspective string writing, blended together with ambient electronics and poignant soundscapes. Her credits include the recent short, In Orbit, directed by Katie McNiece,  working with Johnny Klimek on the Netflix show Sense8 and the motion picture Jungle starring Daniel Radcliffe. Emer recently scored the documentary film Faith which screened at the Vancouver and Atlanta LGBT film festivals and the award-winning short film Suburban Jungle which won Best Short film at the San Pedro International Film Festival in 2018. At the heart of her musical voice is the violin, an instrument she has played since the age of two. Emer is from Malahide in Dublin but resides in Los Angeles.

We have been working hard to develop a shoot and screen festival to raise awareness of homelessness in Ireland in partnership with The Virgin Media Dublin Film Festival, Dublin Business School, Wildcard Distribution and the Headstuff Podcast Network.
