Content studio Afterhrs. has added London-based director, writer and illustrator Danny Sangra to it talent roster for representation covering commercial collaborations in North America. His branded credits include films for Samsung, adidas, Mercedes-Benz, Balenciaga x My Theresa, Netflix and Hermes. Sangra’s body of work also includes numerous original shorts, a feature film, an animated music video for The Beatles’ “The Taxman,” and his own design imprint for Casetify. 

“Afterhrs. was forged with the belief that groundbreaking creative can thrive when talent takes risks while supported by production of the highest integrity,” said Afterhrs. co-founder/EP Thelonious Brooks. “Danny is one of the most intensely imaginative, fearlessly creative people Kai [Regan, Afterhrs. co-founder] 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.”

“It’s hard not to get caught up in Theo and Kai’s energy,” Sangra said, “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.”

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 he gained exposure to interactions and interpersonal relationships that were both everyday and extraordinary. This keen observation and a love of art would soon surface in illustration and design, which he studied at Leeds and St. Martins.

Sangra’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, Sangra expanded his branded collaborations all the while developing a prolific collection of original films and illustration projects. 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.

In addition to Afterhrs. for commercialmaking and branded projects, Sangra is managed for film and TV by Brillstein Entertainment Partners, with illustration representation by Breed London. Before joining Afterhrs., Sangra was repped for commercials by BRF (B-Reel Films) and prior to that, Alldayeveryday.
