Sami Abusamra

Sami started his career at MTV UK producing and directing music programs such as Gonzo with Zane Lowe. His role there involved shooting, directing and cutting numerous hours of live music performances featuring talent such as Queens Of The Stoneage, Graham Coxon, The Kaiser Chiefs and many more.

His lifelong passion for comedy has since seen Sami establish Mister Tibbs, a creative collective that specialises in delivering comedy content to brands and broadcasters. Sami’s commercial work to date includes content for McDonalds, Nike, Virgin Trains and many others. Alongside his advertising commitments Sami continues to write and develop his own TV and film ideas.

Sami’s short films have screened across Europe, North America and the rest of the world with Love Me Tinder being selected for five BAFTA qualifying festivals, Love Nest screening widely and picking up Best Animation at New York Down Town Shorts festival, First Contact winning Best Film at TriForce Film festival in Mayfair and a handful of other pieces garnering best script accolades along the way.  Love Nest is currently being distributed by Aardman Animations.

Sami directed six comedy pieces for Fudge Park/BBC Three that featured the likes of Tash Demetriou, Ellie White, Jack Carroll, Jessie Cave, Joseph Morpurgo and Michael Spicer. He has just delivered two mock doc campaigns, one for Mitsubish and the other for Dominos, which features ex-premier league player Jimmy Bullard. His recent credits also include Hardys wine’s idents for cricket coverage on Channel 5.

In addition, Sami also works as an editor. His most notable editing credits include BAFTA nominee Ben Mallaby’s short film Mosquito (Alice Lowe, Richard Herring) and British indie feature Panic, which stars Interstellar’s David Gyasi.
