About the Director


Over the last decade Candice Carella’s involvement in the creative processes of film making has led to her being the writer, director and producer of PONY; her directorial debut.

Immersed in the busy production of such films as “Breakin’ All the Rules”, “House of Usher”, “50 First Dates”, “Prom”, as well as many TV Series such as “Crossbones”, “Underground”, “Luck”, “Rizzoli & Isles” and others, she has daily gleaned an inside look at how films are made, from top to bottom. This invaluable experience has led to her facination with film making itself, and her deep desire to produce films which are meaningful, and poignant.


PONY has become widely recognized for its inherent revelation. The understanding of our own fragility. Still on the Festival Circuit, the film has won 26 awards, and additional nominations.
