William Samson established Samson Video Productions as a family run business based in Cumbernauld, Glasgow. We have been quietly building on our range of services as a Video Production Company since 2006 & since then, have built up a sizeable satisfied client base including wedding couples through Samson Wedding Videos. After graduating in Media Studies from Cumbernauld College, William quickly became a sought after Director of Photography by many of the ‘Indie’ filmmakers in the Central Belt of Scotland.
AWARDS In 2007 our short film ‘Catch!’ received a coveted BAFTA nomination when entered into the UK-wide BAFTA/Orange Short Film Competition. The following year, William again entered the competition, this time as Director of Photography in the Bad Pony production ‘Looking after Mum’. The film missed out on the top prize, but the team were more than happy to receive a BAFTA Nomination. Again, as Director of Photography, William was involved in the making of ‘Champagne, Christmas & L.O.L.’. This film received no less than 3 awards at the prestigious Kent Film Festival. Our short film ‘Splinter’ was picked to be shown at The Edinburgh Film Festival in 2011. Getting a film shown at the Festival was no mean feat in itself & by all accounts, the film was well received. Most recently we won ‘Best Short Drama’ in the respected Film G competition. We continue to enter competitions, as we use this as a way of ensuring that we maintain our high standards & of course, we hope to win more awards in the future!
Another area that we are very involved in, is that of School Productions. We have filmed many Summer & Christmas Shows and Musical Extravaganzas. William, being an ex-police officer, takes a particular interest in child safety & in 2008, working with the children of Sacred Heart Primary in Grangemouth, his ‘Stranger Danger’ film was awarded ‘The Falkirk & Stirling Young People’s Film Award’ for Best Documentary.
The experience that has been gained by Samson Video Productions over the years has been invaluable. It has enriched our production values when it comes to filming the most important film we can do for you, your Wedding Day. Although Samson Wedding Videos are based in Cumbernauld, Glasgow we also cover the Central Belt including Stirling. We are incredibly passionate about what we do, particularly in the field of Wedding Videos because we know how important your wedding film is to you.
