Director & Producer
Sam Van Zoest
Filmmaker based in Amsterdam and Edinburgh

I have written and directed various short films, and am currently developing my first feature film.

I also work as a line producer and fixer in Scotland, and am always up for collaborations! What kind of movies I like? They have to be exciting to watch and a joy to make. Other than that I’m pretty easy with genres. I’ve done drama, comedy, thriller, and horror. Location based drama’s and character driven pieces are also favourites. Want to spice it up with explosions and gunfire? Bring it on!
