He also has two other long form projects in production; ‘Back Of Me Door’, a film about a group of teenagers in Stockport all dreaming of becoming professional darts players, and a film about Tony Hudgell, a young boy who was abused so badly by his birth parents that he had to have his legs amputated, and has now become something of a national treasure due to his tireless fundraising and efforts to change the law for child abusers.
Based in London, Sam is available worldwide for projects on either a freelance basis or through affiliations with a number of production companies.
