SHIMMY AHMED HAS DARK ENERGY
10 March 2021

Dark Energy have signed multi-talented artist Shimmy Ahmed to their roster for UK representation.

First on set as a seven-year-old extra, it's safe to say that Ahmed has accrued a substantial knowledge of the filmmaking world throughout her career. She's become well known for her encouraging demeanour on-set, using her experience both in front of and behind the camera and drawing strong performances from her cast.


Ahmed's work is full of passion and dark humour, and her reel spans dynamic music promos, thoughtful scripted work, and beautifully observed documentaries. It's this versatility and drive which drew Dark Energy's attention, as EP Anna Allgrove explains.

"Shimmy’s work speaks for itself but what we saw in her was a spark, an energy with which she clearly attacks each brief, grabbing opportunities and trying to get the very best end result for her clients. She lives and breathes this stuff, whether it's films, her radio show or DJing, Shimmy has a drive that feels unstoppable and we’re grateful to be along for the ride!"


Shimmy is a real talent and we’re really excited to be collaborating with her on the next stage of her journey.

 ”

Dark Energy's MD and founder Matt Brown shares this enthusiasm, as Ahmed joins the company's already-packed roster of skilled filmmakers. "Shimmy is a real talent," Brown says, "and we're really excited to be collaborating with her on the next stage of her journey."
