Doug's most recent feature Sorry To Bother You, written & directed by Boots Riley, premiered at the 2018 Sundance Film Festival and has been nominated for Gotham and Indie Spirit Awards after a long summer theatrical run.  He recently wrapped the dark new thriller Tell Me A Story from CBS All Access and earlier this year photographed the second season of HBO's Room 104. A Duplass Brothers original series, Room 104 presented Emmett with the unique challenge of shooting 24 half-hour episodes all in one hotel room. ICG Magazine featured Room 104 in their 2017 September issue (link). His latest films include The Edge of Seventeen and Thumper. The Edge of Seventeen, produced by James L Brooks and filmed in Vancouver with Woody Harrelson and Hailee Steinfeld, was released nation-wide in November 2016. Doug shot Thumper in summer of 2016. Starring Eliza Tayler (The 100) and Pablo Schreiber, Thumper was directed by Jordan Ross and executive produced by Cary Fukunaga. Past Sundance films include  The One I Love (Dir. Charlie McDowell), which received overwhelming critical acclaim at the festival in 2014. His other  features, The Remaining, a Sony Pictures thriller directed by Casey LaScala, and Alex of Venice directed by Chris Messina, premiered in 2014.
Doug spent a good chunk of 2015 shooting the second season of HBO's celebrated series Togetherness with directors Mark and Jay Duplass. 
In the span of six years Doug shot 14 feature films, notably working alongside Oscar-nominated directors Whit Stillman (Love & Friendship) and Dana Adam Shapiro (Murderball), as well as producers Adam McKay, Lynette Howell, Jamie Patricof, and Jen Todd. His other features include 28 Hotel Rooms, Monogamy, The To Do List, Paranormal Activity 4, Damsels in Distress and Bachelorette
The East Coast native, a graduate of NYU's Tisch School of the Arts, has had multiple screenings at Sundance, Toronto, Tribeca, and Cannes film festivals, collectively showcasing his distinct visual language and collaborative dexterity. Emmett is a Union Local 600 cinematographer and a member of the Directors Guild of America, with the ability to work bi-coastally and is represented by United Talent Agency.
