About Me

 Summary

Sam PearsonI am an innovative lead digital content producer and digital marketeer with a passion for factual, sport and entertainment. With extensive experience lying across television production and broadcast, I am driven to develop and execute engaging and exciting digital projects that effectively promote shows and brands.

My proficiencies include story-telling, technical video and audio production, and managing budgets, strategy, evaluation, teams and stakeholders.

Currently working for A+E Networks UK, I oversee the digital media team for the TV channels HISTORY, H2 and BLAZE, which has so far included Blazin’ BBQ Masters and Forged in Britain.

Previously, I have produced two years of Eden channel’s Eden Shorts, a user generated short-form wildlife film competition, and executive produced the one-off broadcast programme Eden Shorts: From Lens to Screen presented by Nigel Marven. On this project I worked with Michaela Strachan on the judging and promotion of the competition and developed some ‘How To’ filmmaking guides with natural history broadcasters Simon King and Chris Packham.

I have also served as producer for the chart-topping comedy football podcast series The Magic Sponge, hosted by former footballer Jimmy Bullard, alongside comedians Rob Beckett and Ian Smith and assorted footballing guests. This also includes two animated shorts on YouTube.

Elsewhere, I have set and implemented the digital strategy and ‘always on’ communications of multiple broadcast channel brands, including nostalgia channel Yesterday, and two series of David Attenborough’s Natural Curiosities, working closely with the inspirational Sir David Attenborough and production company, Humble Bee Films.

First Working with Sir David Attenborough

Sam Pearson with Sir David Attenborough: it was a pleasure and privilege.

Launched and managed the communication strategy and content creation for ITV’s wildlife video archive venture itvWILD, which unfortunately closed shortly after I left (I’m sure I had nothing to do with that!). My time at ITV Anglia also saw me develop and work on the third series of Wild Britain with Ray Mears and the BBC Four series How The Wild West Was Won with Ray Mears amongst a host of other programmes.
