Sam's Filmmaking Mission

As a narrative director, he focusses on rule-breakers with a strong moral compass plunged into exotic locations that compel them to uncover the uncharted aspects of their nature.

His latest project, The Vanishing Strings of the Andes, has screened at festivals around the globe and has won multiple awards for Best Short Documentary and Best Short Music Documentary. And he has also received a congratulatory motion from the Scottish Government!

When this globetrotting filmmaker isn’t exploring distant lands for his next film, you can find him perfecting his chicken, bacon and mushroom tagliatelle.
