“Certainly one of the best Jimmy Jib camera crane owner/operators I have worked with. Gets the job done, gets shots you want with no hassle, chirp or delay. In difficult terrain on top of a mountain, hanging off the cliffs….she got the shots…every time. Relatively easy to do in studio, but on a mountain top with wind blowing, pressed for time she cracked it. Big time.”

“Sam is an exceptionally self motivated owner operator of Jimmy jibs in South Africa. I have worked with her on very challenging film shoots in difficult terrains and with fussy clients. Small in stature very big on service and a passion for the industry, Sam brings massive experience to any production, be it an Indie short film or a full blown feature.”

“Sam was skilled, fun, focussed and a great creative partner to work with which really made for fantastic shots.
Really can do and wanna do!”

“Worked with Sam on the movie version of Meerkat Manor. She is a DoP and Director’s dream – fast, efficient, creative and ‘gets it’ when you describe a tricky move. Can’t recommend her highly enough!”

Paul Williams


Sam is one of the most innovative and creative jib operators I’ve ever worked with. From start to finish, the service is professional and she always delivers more than is expected.
