Global Production company Sweetshop has signed director Jared Daperis for representation in Australia.
An abundantly talented Australian filmmaker, Daperis is a visual storyteller with a poetic style that sets a deeply evocative tone, combining emotion and authenticity. Daperis’ work is defined by boldly cinematic imagery and powerfully restrained performances. It is these genuine and honest character portraits and painterly frames that make his films so inspiring and incredibly affecting.
Daperis studied at New York University. He was nominated for Best Direction at the 2021 Berlin Commercial Awards for his ‘Impossible Is Nothing’ film for Adidas. He has worked with brands including AIA, RACV, Lifeline and Babylove and music artists such as Gang Of Youths and RÜFÜS DU SOL.
Says Edward Pontifex, managing director of Sweetshop Australia: “Jared is an extraordinarily talented Director, his work is uniquely cinematic and visual. The honest way in which he approaches performance and storytelling is so thoughtful and developed. I have no doubt he is going to turn our creative partners’ heads with his commercial work.”
Says Daperis: “I’ve long admired Sweetshop and the quality of work they continue to produce, so it’s incredibly humbling to be joining their roster. I’m excited about the collaboration and working with the team to bring a contemporary tone and aesthetic to honest, character-driven stories.”
Says Wilf Sweetland, global CEO, Sweetshop: “Jared’s work is mesmerising in its beauty. His wonderfully collaborative personality combined with his creative artistry makes him the perfect fit for Sweetshop. We are thrilled to have him on board.”
