Oscar Sansom’s striking cinematic aesthetic and creative approach to filmmaking has been heavily informed by a history in photography and fine art. He crafts bold and sometimes surreal visions of the world, which celebrate and explore the human condition. A director with an uncompromising approach and extreme focus on detail, he is an expert in crafting powerful and emotive performances from actors and contributors. He is constantly pushing boundaries both technically and creatively within his work and his trailblazing works in music film have seen him recognised as one the countries foremost directors of the genre.
Sansom’s distinct style has enabled him to create powerfully arresting and multi award winning works across his extensive history in music video, broadcast commercials, documentary, film, TV and live capture. Working with bands such as Biffy Clyro, Royal Blood, Liam Gallagher and Chvrches and clients including Visit Scotland, RBS and Jura Whisky as well as government campaigns for Road Safety, Organ Donation and Police Scotland to name a few. Oscar’s work is driven by concept and he embraces writing and developing ideas independently as well as working with writers, artists and agency creatives to realise their vision, collaborating regularly with agencies and broadcasters including The BBC, The Leith Agency, and STV.
