Annika Cassidy

Annika creates life-affirming, cinematic films with strength. Focusing on powerful character-driven pieces, casting and performances are understated yet impactful through her use of realism.

With a background in conceptual copywriting at agencies such as Droga5 Dublin, for commercials, she weaves brand with narrative seamlessly– never distracting but subtly persuading. 

Her work will make you laugh and make you cry. Often using humour, but always full of heart.
