Hubley, Emily


On animator festival in years:

2009 2008
Emily Hubley has been making animated films for thirty years and providing animation to television, fictional and documentary films for over a decade. Her hand-drawn films explore personal memory and the turbulence of emotional life. Her narration delivers concrete stories while visual elements question, crack wise and embellish the meaning of specific ideas. Emily depicts a reality that is at once subjective, honest and fun.

Among Hubley's shorts are Pigeon Within, Delivery Man, The Tower (a collaboration with her sister Georgia Hubley), Her Grandmother's Gift (a collaboration with her mother, animator Faith Hubley), and Octave. She recently completed her first feature film The Toe Tactic (2008). Hubley created artwork and animation for John Cameron Mitchell’s Hedwig And The Angry Inch and inserts for many documentaries.

A daughter of pioneer animators Faith and John Hubley, Emily also worked on Faith Hubley's films at The Hubley Studio, Inc. from 1977 to 2001. She lives in Maplewood, New Jersey.
