She also works in shorter forms, and directed the Sundance Film Festival-winning short 'Love You More', which earned both BAFTA and Cannes Palme d’Or nominations.

Sam has also worked commercially, directing ads for many clothing brands as well as music promos for artists including Elton John and REM.

"Aaron Taylor-Johnson"
Sam and Aaron Taylor-Johnson resurrect their creative partnership in this monochrome ad for Givenchy. Much like their music promo for R.E.M.'s 'ÜBerlin', Aaron's dance skills are front and centre as he livens up a stuffy party as a new kind of 'gentleman'. The soundtrack and performances subvert perfume ad tropes and make the whole thing more fun than we might have expected.
Cinematographer: Jeff Cronenweth
Music: Enjoy Yourself - A+
