Sam is an 20 year old film and theatre director.
Sam won the BFI's annual "most promising talent" award at aged 16, with a prize of £5000 to make a short film. Sam's short LIFELINE received a nomination for the Oscar/BAFTA qualifying Best Narrative Short Award at Rhode Island International Film Festival 2016. Sam has been recently commissioned one of two of Random Act's new 'major £10,000 commission'. His film 'yandass.mov' is a collaboration with dancer Yandass Ndlovu, and has worked alongside electronic duo 'Underworld' (Trainspotting, London 2012 Opening Ceremony) to create the soundtrack. He was selected as one of six directors on the National BFI Film Academy programme at the NFTS in 2015.
"One of the most talented young filmmakers we've come across in recent years. His films are beautiful looking, he tells ambitious stories and he knows how to work with a team. I've got no doubt at all that Sam will be collecting more awards in the future."

I want films to challenge and change who we are, how we live and how we feel.
