A creative and innovative digital content, video, audio and social producer Sam Pearson has a passion for wildlife, science and sport, alongside experience in comedy, entertainment and drama.
His knowledge lies in television production and broadcast, and the effective communication to engaged audiences through a narrative storyline, specific call to action, editorial brand building or audience acquisition.
Producer of two years of the Eden channel’s Eden Shorts user generated short-form wildlife film competition and executive producer of the one-off broadcast programme Eden Shorts: From Lens to Screen presented by Nigel Marven. Worked with Michaela Strachan on the judging and promotion of the competition and developing some fantastic How To Guides with natural history broadcasters Simon King and Chris Packham.
Producer for the chart-topping comedy football podcast series The Magic Sponge, hosted by former footballer and full-time jester Jimmy Bullard, alongside hilarious comedians Rob Beckett and Ian Smith and assorted footballing guests. This also includes two animated short clips available to view on YouTube.
Implemented the digital strategy of multiple channels, showcased by Yesterday’s historical social media posts, and managed website microsite campaigns including Yesterday’s ‘Great Escape’ tunnels interactive piece and UKTV’s wider channel portfolio promoting Christmas quiz.
Developed and implemented the digital social media communications for two series of David Attenborough’s Natural Curiosities, working closely with the inspirational Sir David Attenborough and the wonderfully talented production company, Humble Bee Films.
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.
Other examples of my work include several short films created for the UKTV’s corporate social responsibility initiatives UKTV Triathlon in 2014 and UKTV’s London2Paris bike ride in 2013 and the Marketing department’s 2015 showreel.
