Darren Weninger was exposed to the world of advertising at an early age by his father, who was an agency art director for 30 years. After college Darren began working in film production and steadily worked his way up the production ladder. He gained invaluable experience along the way and is now one of the country’s leading tabletop directors. “I enjoy the process of taking the subject matter through the lens, where light and movement can transform objects in the most beautiful way. High-speed cameras and other digital technologies are tools that can provide greater creative freedom for exploration.”


Darren has brought his vision to projects for national clients including Wendy’s, Garnier, Kellogg’s, Dairy Queen, Sheetz and O’Charley’s among others. Darren’s artistic talent and client-focused approach is what drives MK Films, and has fostered long standing relationships that continue to this day.


When not in the studio filming, Darren enjoys sailing, fly fishing, and a variety of other outdoor activities… not to mention keeping up with his wife and two active boys!
