About Helpful Films


My name is Sam Care. I’m a freelance filmmaker, editor and animator. Helpful Films is what I call my filmmaking business. I started freelancing in 2013 after working in the charity sector for several years. I worked in the sector as a multimedia producer, designing websites, graphics, making films and commissioning films.

When I was commissioning films, I found that there were production companies that were great for bigger projects, and a lot of freelancers who specialised in one area of filmmaking such as DPs, editors or directors. But I also noticed that there were not very many freelance filmmakers who could help organisations with smaller projects, from start to finish.

So I left my job in 2013 and started freelancing as ‘Helpful Films’ to meet the demand. I now have more than 10 years of experience making films. Over time, I’ve branched out and my clients include all sorts of organisations including design and research agencies, government bodies, universities and museums, as well as non-profit organisations.
