Sam will be responsible for leading a team of filmmakers and animators to deliver creative work for a wide range of clients including Carnival, GSK and BBC. Sam will partner with award winning Executive Creative Director, Matt Cole to evolve the content agency’s creative work.

In addition to his role as Head of Film at The Moment, Myers will also head up the integrated film team across all three agencies within The Creative Engagement Group: which also include pre-eminent event agencies WRG and Just Communicate. He will be supported by joint heads of production Julia Runagall and Alice Kilpatrick.
Formerly Deputy Head of Film at Havas and with a background in film production for advertising agencies, Sam successfully ran his own production company for a number of years, most recently producing an advertising campaign for Lexus.
Commenting on the appointment, The Creative Engagement Group CEO, Russ Lidstone said “Sam brings with him extensive experience, a real passion for filmmaking and a truly innovative mindset and integrated philosophy. This is hugely important for The Moment, with its history of storytelling and immersive engagement, but also for the unique combination of services in our Group. Sam is a craftsman and a collaborator.”
Sam Myers added “My goal is to make great creative work so it made perfect sense to join the successful and dynamic team at The Moment and play a key role across The Creative Engagement Group.”
“We’re not working to a traditional model, a lot of the barriers to creating great work do not exist here. There’s a real opportunity to help re-define the model in an industry that’s struggling to adapt to today’s creative playing field.”
