Casey is a Midlands-born director based in London working across commercial and narrative content.

Her interest in film began young, making skate films with her friends whilst growing up. After studying graphic design at Falmouth University, Casey landed her first job as an Art Director in the advertising industry. Here, she developed her creative eye and ability to work to client specs along with gaining national recognition representing the UK twice for the Young Cannes Lions competition in both print and film categories.

As a director, Casey has worked with global brands including BMW, Heinz, Microsoft, Renault F1, British Cycling, Jaguar Land Rover, Paym and E.ON. Her specialities lie with automotive, sports and lifestyle.

Alongside commercial work, Casey writes and directs her own short films. Her debut short film, SNAIL, won best film at the Earls Court Film Festival 2017 and has been selected for the BAFTA Cymru qualifying Camarthen Bay film Festival. Most recently, her short ‘THE PERCEPTION OF TIME’ was longlisted for the 20th annual Straight 8 competition, screening later this year.
