Sam was a video producer at Telstra until 2012.
He spent a lot of his time shooting various exciting projects around Telstra, such as product launches and the CEO blog.
Originally a media communications graduate from UNSW Sam has spent almost all of his working life working as a video production specialist.
As a video producer I’ve been working in professional High Definition (HD) video formats for years. When consumer video made the move to HD it really catapulted the viewer experience into a dimension of quality previously only enjoyed by film makers.
So I found myself in a very awkward position on my couch the other day (and I don’t mean some insane Yoga move). My flatmate and friend of over 15 years checked in on 4Square at a local cafe but I knew he wasn’t actually there he was right next to me on the couch while I savaged my online enemies playing Call of Duty.
So it’s that time of year again and Tropfest is rolling into town to showcase some of Australia’s finest filmmaking talent. Now in its second year Telstra Mobile Masterpieces requires filmmakers to shoot their Tropfest short film entirely on a mobile phone.
I love Dolly’s, Jibs, cranes, steadicams, glidecams and all sorts of things that attach to my cameras. They allow camera operators to take stunning shots and are an amazing asset in the filmmakers ‘instant-awesome’ toolkit.
I’ve been a big fan of Keith Loutit’s work since seeing the Bathtub series on Youtube a few years ago. His work is so amazing as it really gives you a unique view of the world blended with skilfully composed shots and impressive actions sequences. Keith’s videos have captured the imagination of millions of people and he is in hot demand as a director for film/TV shoots around the world.
