DARLING RECRUIT CASEY HENNESSY
23 February 2021

Darling Films have recruited talented automotive director Casey Hennessy to their roster for representation.

Known for bringing her Midlands charm and warm attitude to set, Hennessy turned director aged fifteen. She has since graduated from making skateboarding films around her hometown of Nuneaton, and is known for juggling lively visuals with emotional intimacy.


Much of her commercial work combines her two major passions: directing and cars. Hennessy has shot major campaigns for marques all over the world, bringing a slick and cinematic sheen to every project and ensuring viewers are thoroughly engaged via polished visuals.


As a female automotive director working in a male dominated industry, it's fantastic to have the support of these badass women.

 ”

Far from being dedicated solely to car work, however, Hennessy's reel also demonstrates an innate grasp of narrative which shines through her short films. 2019's 'The Perception of Time' plays with those moments which make seconds feel like they stretch to minutes. Whether waiting for a microwave timer to ping or a pregnancy test to develop, it's a fascinating look at the foibles of human perception.


With all this and more to offer, it's no surprise that Darling are "super happy" to welcome Hennessy to the team. The director herself is also looking forward to joining Clare Timms, Kat Downs, and Kelly Doyle et al. at her new home.

"I'm beyond excited to be working with Darling! As a female automotive director working in a male dominated industry, it's fantastic to have the support of these badass women. I can't wait to get started and create new boundary pushing films. Watch this space."

To inquire about Casey Hennessy's availability, get in touch with the Darling team via Kat Downs at kat@darlingfilms.co.uk or on 020 3960 7050.
