Dan Pinchbeck – Creative Director, The Chinese Room – thechineseroom.co.uk - We’ve worked with Sam on three projects now, including the indie hit Dear Esther and we’re really impressed. He’s got that rare mix of being technically brilliant, hugely creative and incredibly easy to work with. He’d be an asset to any project, any studio, any game.
Stas Gailunas – CEO of iWait4 Developers – iwait4.com – Samuel is a very dedicated and creative person who has great initiative. His understanding for atmosphere and character, crossed with his ability to create a solid soundscape as a whole, makes him an incredibly reliable specialist who we can entrust even with major sound decisions. Without fear of it being inconsistent with the visual, narrative and design areas of the project.
Christopher Caouette – Composer – chriscaouette.com – Sam has a tremendous sense of what an environment and how characters should sound like. I have seen his techniques for achieving the results and he has the ability to create exactly what the scene needs. Sam was a pleasure to work with and a great communicator which made the entire sound process run quickly and smoothly. Truly a great skill lives in Sam’s sound design.
Wesley Tack – Lead designer/Level designer/Environment artist on Off Limits – wesleytack.com – I’ve worked with Sam on Off Limits for a number of years on and off. Whenever I needed sounds created he would jump on it straight away and not just produce one sound but multiple, giving us options. He’s very much open to critics and adjusts accordingly when needed. If it wasn’t for Sam’s help Off Limits would be a lot less immersive. From weapon sounds to ambient and UI, Sam does it all until you are happy! Above all else he’s passionate about what he does and that translates in the outcome. Which is the most important aspect of any artist.
Dave Shearer – Lead Artist on Off Limits – theartofoneness.com – Samuel is such an inspiring person to work with! His attitude and good nature really bring out the best in me and others we work with. He is very good at what he does so it is fascinating to see how fast he produces quality audio. Sam really takes the weight off of his part of any project. You know when he is on the job that he only has one thing in mind; making something great!.
