Samuel de Ceccatty

Samuel de Ceccatty came from a background in graphic design before turning decidedly towards directing. His work explores the themes of isolation and imagination in a style that turns everyday life into epic adventures. Manon and Samuel set up their production company in 2011 after their first music video together was screened at Rushes Soho Shorts. Since then, Samuel’s work has screened at international festivals such as the London SFF, Seattle IFF, Cambridge FF and Euroshorts, as well as winning several competitions for established institutions, notably the BFI, the National Theatre, and most recently the BBC’s Writers Room.
