about

Based in East London, we are a small documentary production company specialising in films for the charity sector, independent organisations and individuals. We love what we do and believe in the power of film to explore challenging topics, inspire audiences and drive political and social change. Making films that cater to a wide range of needs, from promotional videos to documentaries which are both informative and beautifully-told, our clients include BBC ideas, Thirty Percy, Specsavers, Housing Justice, The Cripplegate Foundation, Company 3, Parent House, Help On Your Doorstep, The Tall Society and The Dartington Hall Trust.

We aim to work with our clients in a way that is both enjoyable and entirely stress-free. We know how intimidating the idea of producing a film can be for someone who isn’t well-versed in this field, which is why we do our best to be as approachable and down to earth as we can at every step of the process. However vague or clear your ideas are, please get in touch and we’ll be happy to discuss them with you!

BIOGRAPHY

As the name suggests, Sam Pearson Films is the brain child of Sam Pearson. Having co-founded the award-winning performance and video collective Me and the Machine with Clara García Fraile in 2009, Sam helped to produce a succession of highly acclaimed works, gaining an international reputation as an innovator of cutting edge storytelling techniques. Championed and supported by the likes of The British Council, they pioneered the integration of performance with screen-based media, including the evermore popular medium of V.R. In 2016, Sam began an MA in Documentary Production at The University of West of England, graduating with a Distinction. Whilst developing Sam Pearson Films, he has and continues to work with the acclaimed documentary filmmaker, Mark Kidel, as his shooting AP and sound recordist.
