A Creative Filmmaker
Not just a muse on the screen but Emma Watson also tries out the work behind the camera. During the lockdown because of the pandemic, Watson learned filmmaking.
Watson created a short film featuring the artist Emma Webster, posted on the latter’s Instagram. As expected by Watson, the film tackled women’s empowerment and environmental activism.
However, the actress makes her official directorial debut in the Prada Paradoxe campaign as she fronts the new women’s fragrance. Watson tells the paradox of being a woman in her film. She proves how talented she is by acting as the director, writer, narrator, and performer on it. We definitely stan a multifaceted woman!
