 It's the work, stupid.

DARK ENERGY LIKE THE TASTE OF DOMINIC CYRIAX.
30 January 2019

Dark Energy's hunger for new signings has led them to accomplished TV and commercials director Dominic Cyriax.

Whether he's shooting an ad campaign or a cookery show, Cyriax is determined to capture what he calls "the joy of people preparing and eating food" - a mantra which has seen him become one of the industry's go-to foodies.


Cyriax's commitment to his craft even informs his holiday plans, as he's always got an eye and a nostril for new eating experiences across the globe. As the air miles grow and his palate expands, so does his enthusiasm for food presentation.


Whether it’s for a supermarket campaign or a celebrity chef TV show, [Dominic will] have your mouth watering and down the shops in no time!

 ”

When he's back on set, Cyriax delivers crisp, moreish photography and coaxes strong performances from the likes of Nigella Lawson, Gordon Ramsay, and Heston Blumenthal - all of whom require a director with a sure hand as well as an understanding of food.


Such attributes led Dark Energy founder Matt Brown to say: "I'm a huge fan of Dominic's work. He has a wealth of experience and is able to capture the joy of food beautifully on camera. Whether it's for a supermarket campaign or a celebrity chef TV show, he'll have your mouth watering and down the shops in no time!"

Cyriax repays the compliment by adding: "I'm excited to work with Matt. He's just the person of the moment who really understands the cataclysmic changes [occuring] in advertising."

You can see the rest of Dominic Cyriax's work at his Dark Energy page. For more information about Dark Energy's foodtop roster, ring Sebastian Dean on 07904 876 798 or email him through sebdean@darkenergyfilms.com.
