Darren Ashton / World Wide Webber






Funny stuff has always been Darren’s focus. He loves working with actors and making scenes as funny as they can be. He’s been fortunate enough to work with some great actors both in Australia and internationally.

He’s had some Cannes finalists and won awards in Australia, NZ, London, and Asia for his comedy based commercials.

In feature film world, his mullet induced rock’n’roll comedy THUNDERSTRUCK was distributed through Icon and was a hit with AC/DC fans throughout the world.

His second feature, RAZZLE DAZZLE was selected for over 20 film festivals worldwide so Darren got to wear black and stroll along the red carpet for about a year.¬†¬†Darren loves comedy. It’s immediate and if it’s funny – it works.

Darren is excited about being with Exit.
