Sam Southward

Explored the possibility that the only thing worse than being the last man on earth is being the second to last man on earth. Brought joy to families across the country by bringing the Gruffalo characters to life.     

Sam Southward is funny. Very funny. He brings his sense of humour to tell laugh-out-loud stories using distinct character design and a combination of live action and CG techniques.                                                      

His film After the End was selected for the 2015 Annecy animation festival and won Gold at the 2016 Young Director Awards for the Film School Category.

Sam has recently been BAFTA nominated for his work on The Gruffalo Spotter augmented reality app.
