Director

While at college, Sam directed three productions, including the final major project for which he was awarded a distinction.

Sam took a break from directing for a number of years to concentrate on developing his writing skills, and as co-director of the Lantern Film Festival. In 2009 he returned to directing, working on the web series The Kingsnorth Lobotomy. Since then Sam has directed the Kingsnorth Lobotomy as a podcast.

It was the autumn of 2011 before Sam directed his first personal short since college, Life Is A Stage, followed by a campaign of eight shorts on the subject of mental health awareness among teens and young adults in the summer of 2012. In the autumn of 2012, Sam directed short film Kite, completed in 2013 as was a test scene from All About Town.

He is currently directing his latest short feature Transmission Interrupted.
