Director Biography - Emily Fischer

Emily, almost exclusively referred to as Fisch, has a background in theatre directing to which she attributes her passion for working with actors, production design, and concept. She believes strongly in the merit of preparation and developing a strong craft to fall back on when inspiration runs out and to jump off of when inspiration strikes.

Director Statement

Visitors was created in the aftermath of the creative drought of quarantine and while we didn't want to address the pandemic specifically, the themes of isolation and grief carried over into the script. The main drive in beginning this project was seeking connection and collaboration with other like-minded and enthusiastic people and shaking off the insecurities of such a long time off. We put special emphasis on seeking talented cast and crew members with limited experience and a desire to develop and hone their skills in new ways. All of our actors had limited on-screen experience, we had many crew members in positions they had never filled before, and I myself had never taken on a project of this size. It was daunting, and nerve-racking, and an ultimately beautiful experience I wouldn't trade for the world. My hope is that Visitors offers people a moment outside of their daily lives to question what they believe about love, the afterlife, and their own (potentially toxic) coping mechanisms in a short, but cathartic closed loop.
