Sam Coyles

Sam studied Acting & Film at the University of Calgary before attending SAIT, and was inspired to take the FVP program because he wanted to round out his skill set by gaining hands-on knowledge of everything behind the camera. Sam got into filmmaking because he fell in love with the emotional impact the medium has on people. Finding that film has the capacity to resonate with something in all of us, and how it connects us to our humanity. Within the industry, Sam aspires to collaborate in bringing meaningful stories to life. And in terms of post graduation, it is his intention to work in the film industry in any capacity he can. It is his hope that in doing so, he will find a role that suits his talents, one which he can develop into a lengthy and fulfilling career.


Sam’s favourite movie is Twister (1996).
