Director, Writer, Designer Danny Sangra Joins Afterhrs

Apr. 16, 2024

Afterhrs., a content studio known for boundary-expanding creative, has united with London-based director, writer and illustrator Danny Sangra  – whose work spans form and genre with captivating and wildly entertaining results. His branded collaborations include films for Samsung, adidas, Mercedes-Benz, Balenciaga x My Theresa, Netflix and Hermes. His vast body of work also includes numerous original shorts, an acclaimed feature film, an animated music video for The Beatles “The Taxman,” and his own design imprint for Casetify. 

Co-Founder/EP Thelonious Brooks said:

"Afterhrs. was forged with the belief that groundbreaking creative can thrive when talent takes risks while supported by production of the highest integrity. Danny is one of the most intensely imaginative, fearlessly creative people (Afterhrs. Co-Founder) Kai and I know. He’s also open, curious, funny and unpretentious – all of which in the collaborative process and his work. His talent is exceptional and rare. He deserves a production partner that is willing to be fearless on his behalf, and we couldn’t be more excited to make great things together."

 

Danny said:

"It’s hard not to get caught up in Theo and Kai’s energy. You feel like you could take on Godzilla bare handed. You want to be part of whatever they are up to. I thought we were going on a spy mission when they first brought up Afterhrs. Turns out, it’s their production company. One I’m now proud to be part of."

 

Danny Sangra grew up in the North of England where his father’s passion for photography and film made an early imprint. As a child, he spent hours in his mother’s hair salon where the interactions and interpersonal relationships were both everyday and legendary. This keen observation and a love of art would soon surface in illustration and design, which he studied at Central St. Martins. 

Danny’s foray into film was via the fashion industry, a creative playground where his playful rebuke of convention, comedic sensibility, and design-drive style were embraced by the likes of Miu Miu and Burberry. From there, Danny expanded his branded collaborations all the while developing a prolific collection of original films and illustration projects. As a writer/director, Danny’s deadpan humor and captivating performances punctuated with the unexpected and curious, are seamlessly harmonized with curated stylized visuals. His films and illustrations have been featured in a range of film festivals, art and culture publications, and in installations at Burberry stores and the VMG show in Tokyo. 

He is represented by Afterhrs. for commercial collaborations in North America, with Film/TV Management by Brillstein Entertainment Partners, and illustration representation by Breed London.
