Darren Walsh

Director, Passion Animation Studios

In an industry where we are constantly pushing the envelope creatively and technically, it is important to recognize and nurture the craftsmanship behind the success stories. It takes many hands, careful coordination and rare skills to produce great work, so let’s celebrate that collaborative process.

Darren’s career as a Director has spanned the areas of 3D animation and CG, Claymation, live action and real-time puppeteering, bringing to life characters of every shape and form to life with compelling scripts and innovative vision. 

In a career spanning over two decades, Darren has created memorable features such as the critically acclaimed children’s TV show Angry Kid. While in the commercial sphere, he has directed iconic ads like Play-Doh for Sony Bravia, that saw bouncing bunnies in every colour imaginable, take over New York. His long-running work for Comparethemarket has evolved over the years as he continues to find new ways to bring the much-loved meerkat characters to their international audience.
