After twenty years in international film sales, marketing, development and production, for PolyGram, Summit and as MD of Salt, Samantha gave it all up in Summer 2015 to become a screenwriter. Her first script got her an agent (United Agents), her second script got her meetings with all the top British production companies, and her third script got development funding from Ffilm Cymru (and that’s all she’s allowed to say for now).

Samantha is also a freelance development consultant, offering “creative notes from a commercial perspective,” lectures widely on creating films the market may want, and was the founder of The Vipers Nest, the creative collective for first time filmmakers, and she still enjoys mentoring up-and-coming talent.
