Sam Pratt Production Manager
In under 3 years Sam has gone from an amateur camera operator making films in his back garden to working with internationally acclaimed performers, speakers and MP’s.
Sam has had the opportunity to interview one of Time Magazine’s 100 Most Influential People of 2011, had his work broadcast on a primetime BBC1 show and was involved in the production of a short film shown in the United States. Working on two feature films and in a professional broadcast and corporate video environment, Sam has gained the skills to produce high quality material within time and budget constraints.
Sam is pleased that his skills complement the other two team members who he met on the prestigious Northern Lights Multi-platform media training course, from which Captive North evolved.
