Emett Casey is Colorado based filmmaker, working in both digital and analog traditions. His films run a spectrum from arthouse narrative to experimental abstraction.
Concerned mostly with mythopoetics, Emett focuses on concepts of the identity and perception through myth, folklore, surrealism, magic and ritual, with a generally subtle inclusion of humor, irony and satire. His work has been shown at theaters, festivals, galleries and micro cinemas around the U.S. and abroad.
Raised in Washington State, Emett attended Tacoma School of the Arts before pursuing a BFA in Film Production from Chapman University. Day-jobbing within Hollywood for twelve years to support his films, Emett became involved with the Echo Park Film Center as a Co-op member in 2016 until 2021, when he moved to Colorado.
He works as a freelance Production Sound Mixer, while devoting his creative time to cinematic art works.
