Karen Cunningham’s directorial work is full of warm and honest performances. When Karen crafts a commercial, her focus is on casting. One of the best examples is her Barbie spot which has garnered more than 40 million view online and portrays Barbie in a modern, positive light. The spot has won several ad industry awards, including a Cannes Silver Lion, a silver at the ADC Awards, a Clio and an AICP Award.
Once an owner and EP of a successful production company, Pink Films, in London, Karen switched gears to direct commercials and was instantly profiled in Shots Magazine. She won the Cannes Young Director Award for her first spot “When I Grow Up” through BBH in London.
Karen joined the roster at Slim in 2010 and went on to direct campaigns for major brands such as Disney, Bayer, Dannon and Uncle Ben’s, and continues to showcase stellar performances in her work.
