BROWN BAG FILMS is an Irish company behind award-winning, internationally successful animated shows like Doc McStuffins (if you’ve a child, you’ll know this show well), the Octonauts, and shorts like Give Up Yer Aul Sins.
A trip around their offices showed us that it takes a HUGE amount of work to create every little piece of these shows. Creating the characters isn’t just a matter of scribbling down an idea, and colouring it in.
For a volunteer project led by Brown Bag employee Damien O’Connor, staff worked in their free time to create a stunning short called Anya to help raise money for To Russia With Love.
O’Connor showed us how they worked on one particular scene in Anya, turning it from script to storyboard…
How long did it take them to take this nine-second clip from script to screen?
