"I first encountered Sam’s remarkable talent when I saw his short film ‘Killing Ruby’. Sam's directorial skills were clear to me in every frame, his interpretation of character, text and mis-en scene were all absolutely present. It is impressive to see what takes others a full team of people and five figure budgets, Sam can achieve with equal quality and standards with minimal resources and a fraction of the budget.


I have also since employed Sam within my job at the V&A Museum. His ideas always elevate a project and his fearlessness and willingness to get his hands dirty makes him a true team player and absolute gem to work with."

Emily Harris - Writer/Director and Head of Film Production, V&A

"Trust is the thing. When you find a filmmaker that you trust to care as much about your project as you do, you don’t use anyone else, and I haven’t! He’s the ultimate professional and oversees everything from timetables to storyboards to bringing together the ‘dream team’. All of that is secondary to his talent and artistry which I could go on about but his work speaks for itself! My music videos have been a huge part of my online presence and I couldn’t have done it without Sam. There’s a collaborative feel to the process that just sets him apart from other filmmakers."

Emer Barry - Soprano, Columbia Artists

"Sam has always brought a huge amount of creativity and expertise to the table from the concept stage right through to final delivery. Most recently we were asked to produce a commercial for IrishAmerican whiskey. I asked Sam to pitch some ideas. We went with his concept which he not only directed but also shot and edited beautifully. At the last minute he even contributed a temp score which we ended up using in the final cut. I wouldn’t hesitate recommending him to any production worthy of his talent."

Victor Burke, Director, IPC Digital Media

“When I decided to make my first video I knew it needed a certain warmth and slickness that would capture the interest of the industry. From the first point of contact, Sam was incredibly generous and had no hesitation in sharing his wealth of knowledge and experience. His attention to detail from pre-shoot to the edit was extraordinary.  Sam and his team instantly put me at ease and made the day an extremely enjoyable experience for me and my musicians. The videos have amassed over a million views and have opened many doors for me. First impressions count and I owe so much of my success to the quality of Sam’s work”

“I shot a short film which was both live action and animation. After many years trying to get the post production finished I was profoundly disappointed that it didn’t pack the punch that I had envisaged. I had known Sam for years at this stage and I knew he was a bit of a genius, able to turn his hand to all aspects of film making. I told him my problem and asked if he could take a look at the footage and see if he could come up with an edit that would be closer to the emotional impact I had hoped to achieve. His editing of the film was breathtaking, casting a fresh creative vision over a project I had stopped believing in. I was amazed by his insight and incredibly grateful. Sam O’Mahony is an artist. Get him while you still can….”
