Based in the UK

Darapen, the Executive Producer at Academy Films, has been immersed in the agency life for 14 years. With a wealth of experience from her time at AMV BBDO and Saatchi & Saatchi, she brings not only a deep knowledge of the industry but also a fervor for filmmaking, boundless energy, and unwavering enthusiasm.

Darapen began her career as an account management graduate at Saatchi & Saatchi 15 years ago. However, she was quickly captivated by the allure of production and swiftly transitioned into the TV department. There, she provided valuable assistance on campaign launches such as the original EE launch, directed by the late Ringan Ledgwidge, and played a crucial role in curating the then-titled 'Cannes New Directors Showcase.'

Throughout her tenure at Saatchi & Saatchi and later at AMV BBDO, she collaborated with esteemed directors and production companies, resulting in multiple award-winning campaigns. In her current position at Academy Films, her primary focus is nurturing emerging talent on the roster, with the ultimate goal of providing them with a strong foundation for commercial success as the next generation of filmmakers.
