Samuel Bennetts is an LA based director originally from Sydney, Australia. Being a super-nerd, his love of film began with an early focus on comic books, pop culture, and the films they inspired. With a strong vision, he began his directing career creating stage plays. From here, he went to university to study science and psychology, but always felt a burning passion for drama, continually directing various productions on screen and stage. After directing his first short film, Samuel quickly focused on creating dozens of music videos for bands such as Rogue Traders, INXS, Grinspoon and his childhood friends - Bluejuice. Moving to London, Samuel moved into commercial filmmaking, directing promos for the BBC. Samuel expanded to directing more global commercials and became highly sought, working with brands such as VW, McDonalds, Johnson & Johnson, Castrol, Ebay, Powerade and Canon. Today he lives in Los Angeles and works on commercials and digital productions. Samuel’s love of film is still very much that super-nerd who loves comic books and pop culture, but it has now expanded to a true love of the medium itself - relishing the joy of working closely with actors, cinematographers, designers and post production artists.
