Sam Moore is a UK based, international award winning animation director.
She loves the joyfulness and eclectic nature of animation. No one ever finds animation intimidating, and yet it can convey complex ideas to a wide audience in an engaging way.
Sam has made work on diverse subjects, from competitive sweet-pea growing, to cutting edge microbiology, and her own experience of having twins.

Her work is 2D animation but she regularly directs animators in stop motion and 3D CGI animation when the project requires it. She is interested in storytelling and how using narrative engages an audience, and she hopes to develop her future work in this direction.

Her most recent film Bloomers (2019) was about a knicker factory in Manchester, and has won several international awards including ‘Best British Film’ at the London International Animation Festival, and was nominated for a British Animation Award for Best Short. It was added to the BFI national film archive in 2020.
