Director's Bio

From the humble beginnings of a home office and a dream, to an award-winning equine film company in the space of five years, managing director Sam, has built up a team of experts in the horse, creative and technology world’s to produce outstanding results. Developing this previously untapped opening, EP now covers a wide range of areas – from promotional films and television commercials, to bespoke features, online content and of course JockeyCam. With a background in broadcasting, specialising in sports and news, alongside a lifelong fascination with horses, Sam oversees day-to-day business operations. Away from his desk, Sam enjoys following Plymouth Argyle in their endless pursuit to one day make England’s top flight, watching (and very occasionally playing) many different sports, and spending time with his family including two young daughters, Florence and Harriet.
