Sam Washington

Sam is an award winning Director and Writer with a passion for crafting on-screen moments that audiences have a real connection with. A ‘performance director’ in the purest sense. His passion for the process has led to successful campaigns with some of the world’s biggest brands.

And it’s no surprise that Sam has garnered his fair share of silverware. Sam’s work with comedian Ricky Gervais, in particular, received global recognition, winning numerous international awards including advertising’s highest honour - a Cannes Lion.

Between commercials, Sam turns his attention to longer narratives and has a catalogue of short films that have won multiple awards at film festivals around the world, including the highly regarded Palm Springs Shortfest Audience Choice Award.

Last year, Sam was recognised by BAFTA and placed on their prestigious Newcomers roster – a select list of emerging British film talent.
