Sam started making films at the age of three, using up all his Dad's film creating rudimentary stop motion animations with his toys. At boarding school he snuck out to study a film studies A–level at the local college, before attaining a BA in Film from Kent University, and recently, an MA/Distinction in Filmmaking from the London Film School.
Sam has worked in a wide variety of styles over the years, from papier-mâché expressionism to coarse and brutal realism, but his work is always concerned with telling a story – his films are honest and full of heart.
Sam lives in London, and runs a production company, DOG BUTTON, with fellow filmmaker Jan Hillman. He works as a director, writer and producer.
