Inside

Sam Steer

MA work

As a child, I loved making super-8 animations. However, my animation career started in earnest upon realising I could use the model-making, costume and lighting skills from my theatre design degree to tell big stories in miniature – that has given me a particular affinity with stop-motion.


The Beast I Am is Theo’s awkward odyssey, and his first step on the perilous journey to manhood – but first he must face his fears in the dungeons of puberty.


I intend to continue making music videos, art films with a cinematic edge and one day, a full-blown feature film.
