My name is Sam Hamper, I’m a freelancer filmmaker looking to promote arty endeavours, interesting social ideas and lots of community engagement. As a ‘one man band’ I’ll work with you to plan every aspect of production plus advise on how to get your video seen. So if you want to showcase your cause but also want help in getting it out to an audience, get in touch, or email


I shoot on Panasonic Micro Four Thirds cameras (small cameras :-)) and keep a very portable setup, this allows me to zip around and not get bogged down, perfect for events of those with tight budgets. You can view my kit here


I’m also a working artist bringing my love for video into my artwork, visit for details.
