Please welcome award-winning Dutch director Sam de Jong to the Black Dog family!
Born in Amsterdam and raised in a small village on the outskirts of the city, Sam has directed internationally acclaimed documentaries, music videos, commercials and drama films, and we’re thrilled to announce that the talented director has now signed with Black Dog UK for representation.
He graduated from the Dutch film school in 2012 with the short film Magnesium, which premiered at Sundance the following year. After Magnesium, Sam directed celebrated short films for Marc Jacobs and Malaguti Phantom before writing and directing his first feature, Prince, which opened at the 2015 Berlin Film Festival and was recognized with a Crystal Bear Award.
Sam has helmed music videos for the likes of UK electronic producer Hudson Mohawke, Dutch Hip hop duo Lil Kleine & Ronnie Flex, and The Opposites – which was nominated for 2014 Dutch music video of the year.
His work has been critically praised and awarded around the world, and we’re looking forward to sharing more of the director’s inspiring, quirky, and off-kilter music videos. Sam said, “I’m really happy to be joining Black Dog and start working on some fresh new vids,” and we couldn’t agree more! Watch this space.
