Sam is a creator, artist and videosmith. Originally from Huddersfield, he moved to Liverpool in 2001 to study film and drama. His interests have always moved between film, theatre and interactive design, exploring the role of analogue technologies in a digital landscape, and the potential to fuse the two in production, projection and performance. His tool of choice varies from sophisticated video software such as Isadora, to old analogue titlers bought off ebay.
He also co-directs of Re-Dock – a not-for-profit arts organisation, developing projects that explore ways in which communities relate to digital media, ideas and public space. Re-Dock have developed the Small Cinema project, exploring the role of cinema in relation to community.
Anthony is a web designer. He has being doing it quite a while. Most of the time for local government, but don’t hold that against him. He loves what he does and works for interconnect/it now, which is much better.
Anthony has a penchant for football shirt design, a love of tea, and a thirst for beer. His Instagram based reviews of beers (#alelog) is practically at the 100 mark and will definitely be made into a proper website one day. He thinks that now that is written here it will somehow come to life on it’s own. Fingers crossed.
He also loves Sensible Soccer and thinks you should check out his prints. That might also give him a kick up the backside to make some more of them too. He generally need a big kick.
It should be noted that Anthony also doesn’t like writing about himself in the third person.
