Passionate car director Casey Hennessy has an unwavering ability to create films that are dynamic and exciting while maintaining a sense of intimacy. This stays true across all her work, from documentary driven films on female race drivers to slick cinematic car spots.

Previously working as an Art Director for an advertising agency, Casey’s ability to see a concept right through production is at the heart of what she does. She has directed films for global clients including BMW, Microsoft, Jaguar Land Rover, The Telegraph, W Series and Renault F1. Her commercial for W Series and International Women’s Day celebrated women in motorsport on the road to Formula 1.

Alongside commercials, Casey continues to develop her narrative projects. Her latest BFI-funded short film, TREACLE TOWN, premiered at Little Wing Film Festival and was nominated for best directing, best actress and best editing.

She is also in development of two features - MUZZLE, a rape revenge thriller  and ALL GRAVY, a black comedy in early development with the BFI.

Casey is a forward thinking creator who brings her Midlands warmth and charm everywhere she goes.
