Audio Production Post Project (2022)
This video was Sam's final project in his Audio Production class. All students were provided this classic train chase sequence from "Wallace And Gromit: In The Wrong Trousers" (1993).

59 MINUTES & 59 SECONDS (2022)
59 Minutes And 59 Seconds was the second project in Sam's Multicam Production class. The prompt for this project: a four minute, live television interview. Graphics were required.

COME A LITTLE BIT CLOSER (2022)

DOOMS DAY (2016)
Dooms Day is likely Sam's most memorable childhood project. Containing no concrete plot or ending, Dooms Day started filming the day of conception. The "production" ended up spanning a year. Dooms Day can very easily be split into four filming sessions, switching back and forwards between Sam and best friend, Willem's homes. The IOS app, Action VFX, was integral to the films production. (This project is not to be taken seriously).
Starring: Sam Santrock, Kate Santrock, Dr. Dale Santrock
Nerf Warfare (2015)
Inspired by popular YouTube videos from the time, Nerf Warfare was one of Sam's first directed and fully completed projects without collaboration from friends. The film's crew consisted only of Sam's family members. This also marks Sam's first "attempt" at "audio mixing" (It is not very professional as can be seen). The film includes multiple Nerf products as props.
Starring: Sam Santrock
