As a child growing up in Bristol, England, Sam Downie possessed a love for Warner Bros cartoons especially Daffy Duck and the creations by animator Chuck Jones (who Sam met in Bristol, at the Animation Festival in the late 90’s). Sam also loves animated Disney films, and as fate would have it, Pixar short & feature films such as UP, WALL•E and many others. He also loves the storytelling by Jim Henson (The Muppets, Labyrinth, The Storyteller, and Henson Alternative), and inspired by the likes of George Lucas (Star Wars of course), and by Steven Speilberg.

Sam’s passion inspired him to study art in school, and then film and television in college, where he focused on the art of time-based storytelling at the University of the West Of England (UWE).

Upon graduating from UWE, Sam began working in radio, then television working his way up from tea maker to 2nd unit director and floor manager, working for the likes of BBC, ITV and Channel 4 Television in the UK.

As you can see, Sam Downie wears many hats, he’s a – “critically acclaimed Polymath” !

Sam currently resides in Bristol, England.
