My name's Alastair Tye Samson. I'm an independent filmmaker currently living in Auckland, New Zealand.

I freelance as an Online Editor and motion picture finishing nerd. I'm passionate about using Autodesk Smoke and Avid Symphony to make films, television shows, music videos and TVCs more awesome and finessed.

A feature film I produced, JAKE, is currently in release. I continue to independently develop a slate of short films and features with my collective Hybrid Motion Pictures.

This is a collection of my work, my photos, what I'm listening to and what is inspiring me.
