Darragh Carey Joins Ponder Directors Roster

Ponder has announced the addition of Darragh Carey to its roster of directors. A graduate of The London Film School, Darragh comes to directing with 15 years experience as an agency creative. Having worked in Publicis, Wieden + Kennedy and R/GA, his work for brands like TG4, Nike, and Beats by Dre has won over 50 creative awards including D&AD, Cannes Lions and The One Show. His first feature film, ‘A Brixton Tale’ (now available for streaming), was released in UK cinemas in 2021. The Evening Standard described it as "the must-see independent film of the year." He believes in a truly collaborative approach and in combining audio-visual flair with empathy and authenticity.

“I love working with Darragh.  His understanding of the language of film and storytelling is second to none.  Having been a top creative too he thinks so deeply about every single part of the process from beginning to end.  He is an absolute joy to work with.” Mark Shanley, creative director Adam & Eve DDB London.

Paul Holmes, founder and executive producer, Ponder:  “I have known Darragh for many years and I worked with him recently on a project for Special Olympics Ireland.  Darragh has the perfect combination of being a wonderfully talented director together with a deep understanding of the advertising business.  I am very much looking forward to working on some exciting projects with Darragh.”

Darragh Carey, director: “It's seriously exciting to join Ponder and a bunch of talented people I've admired for years. I'm legit giddy at the thought of getting stuck in and proving I deserve a place among them.  So let's go. Give Paul a shout and we'll all go shoot something!”

"I work with Darragh as often as possible. Not only because he's a delight to collaborate with, and frightfully intelligent, but also because I know that soon enough he'll be off in Hollywood, and will no longer reply to my voice-notes." Paddy Treacy, creative director Wieden & Kennedy London.
