Hailed from Wellington, Sam Kelly studied under the world-renowned coach for directing actors, Judith Weston. His short film Lambs won Best Film and the Audience Award at the 2012 New Zealand International Film Festival, and has been selected in competition at the prestigious Berlinale, Clermont-Ferrand and Melbourne International Film Festivals. Sam also won Wellington's 48HOURS competition three consecutive times, and won New Zealand's Young Filmmaker of the year award.
Sam's work combines cinematic imagery with performances that have a strong sense of authenticity and human connection. With an exciting TVC career ahead of him, we are very pleased to welcome him to the Fish team.
