Sam joined the Maddogs team in July of 2022 after graduating from the Bournemouth Film School. It was only a matter of weeks between him walking across that graduation stage wondering what his next step would be, and having his interview with Maddogs. From working in retail, behind bars, in factories and multiple other jobs; Sam has really found what he loves.
In-house, Sam works with the team to ensure all the kit that is sent out has been maintained correctly and is exactly what the clients require for them to achieve the best results they can.
On location, during his time at University Sam dabbled in spark, grip and set design work which resulted in two of his crew being awarded 2nd place at the nahemi Kodak Student Commercial Awards. He has experience from working across multiple different fiction student films that opened up his eyes to his love of the industry. From this he has expanded his knowledge and is now an experienced Data Wrangler and has been trained to operate unique time-lapse photography equipment.
Sam is available to hire as Camera Assistant, Data Wrangler, Lighting Gaffer and Minicam’s Operator/rigger.
Sam once fell out of a plane at 15,000 ft for fun… and charity.
