Mini Bio (1)

Samuel Victor is a British feature film and television actor, producer, director, writer and cinematographer, best known for Rogue One (2016), Brotherhood (2016), LiveJustine (2015), Man in the Mirror (2015), Night of the Living 3D Dead (2013) and The Perfect Love Song (2011). He has been executive producer of several projects in the USA including space epic The Last Scout (2017), and television Drama "No Easy Days" (2015). He is also an experienced animator, who trained with Don Bluth, Richard Williams and has worked as freelance in various capacities for the Walt Disney Corporation.

Victor entered the entertainment industry in 1997, starting in music after winning a national song-writing competition, and going on to win a world-wide competition to work with R Kelly. After an appearance on BBC Radio 1, he met D12, and worked with them on several occasions, and went on to ghost-write and produce for several major label artists. After meeting Stormzy whilst working on Brotherhood, he rapped with him on his SnapChat and was encouraged to release solo material. His solo debut Fingers Up (Gun Sign), inspired by Brotehrhood, was featured on VEVO and has over a quarter of a million views.

Always interested in film, he started making music videos and writing for film soundtracks, and from 2009 to 2010 he worked as an apprentice on over 100 film and television projects to (in his words) "learn the industry". He wrote and directed his first feature film The Perfect Love Song (2011) in 2009, which gained recognition from BAFTA, screened at the British Film Institute for Valentines Day, and was remastered for DVD release in 2013.

Samuel runs the Welsh Film Institute with his wife, and has been awarded two BAFTA bursaries, as a producer and screenwriter. He is the author of industry text books "The Filmmaker's Bible" and "The Filmmaker's Dictionary", and teaches filmmaking techniques in his "Four Hour Film School". After meeting Paul J. Franklin at The Guardian newspaper, they discussed developing his first "Hollywood Budget" film, the visual effects spectacular #Buttercup (2018).
