Emily finds herself disconnected from the world around her. She journeys through her memories, reliving moments from her life. Emily must look to her past so that she may fully embrace the present.

A creative director at Cartoon Saloon, Bagnall has designed characters for International Emmy nominee Puffin Rock and the Oscar-nominated features Song of the Sea and The Breadwinner. She studied animation at the National Film School of Ireland and graduated in 2007, and has directed a number of other short films including Donkey (2009) and Loose Ends (2012). She is currently working as a story artist on director Tomm Moore’s upcoming feature film, Wolfwalkers.
While the idea for Late Afternoon had been gestating inside Bagnall’s sketchbook for a number of years, it was produced in just 10 months under a budget of €46,000 provided by the Frameworks short film scheme funded by the Irish film board, Screen Ireland, and national broadcaster RTÉ.
