Sam Brown


Sam’s ability to consistently deliver beautiful and unique films has been recognised at the highest level in the industry. He started out in music videos and became one of the most sought-after promo directors in the world, winning armfuls of MTV, VMA & CAD awards. Sam’s videos for Jay-Z - ‘On to The Next One’ (100m hits), Foo Fighters ‘The Pretender’ (200m hits), Adele’s ‘Rolling In The Deep’, (1.7bn hits and a Grammy for ‘Best Video’) and London Grammar’s ‘Strong’ (50m hits) have cemented his reputation as a director who will continue to craft music videos which are always beautiful and always quite unlike anything else. He has created powerful ads for high-profile brands including Apple, Adidas, Audi, BBC, Guinness, Honda, Land Rover, Lexus, Lloyds Bank, 02 and Virgin. Sam’s work continues to be as eclectic as ever… the only similarity being exquisite photography and impeccable attention to detail. His awards include Golds at British Arrows, Cannes, LIA, Creative Circle and a best direction pencil at D&AD.
