Animation producer and director Darragh O’Connell oversees the visual output of Brown Bag Films. He has directed hundreds of commercials, in television, and on short films.
His production and editing credits include: the Give Up Yer Aul Sins short film series (using 1960s actual recordings of Irish inner city students telling their versions of famous bible stories) along with Crap Rap, and I'm an Animal, and Wobblyland for TV.
Darragh also works closely with the studio's up and coming younger directors. He has been busy directing many episodes of Olivia for Chorion Silver Lining and Nickelodeon.
Darragh also produced Nicky Phelan's animated short film, Granny O'Grimm's Sleeping Beauty. Granny O'Grimm is a seemingly sweet old lady who loses the plot as she tells her version of Sleeping Beauty to her terrified granddaughter.
Both Give Up Yer Aul Sins and Granny O'Grimm's Sleeping Beauty have been nominated for Academy Awards.
