IT'S FAT LEMON FOR SAM H BUCHANAN.
27 July 2021

Fat Lemon have made Bristol's own Sam H Buchanan the latest addition to their directing roster.

When he's not on a film set, Buchanan can be found in the boxing ring, on a mountain bike trail, or running around his hometown. All this exercise keeps him sharp as a volley of scripts comes his way.


Fat Lemon cite Buchanan's recent work for Pizza Express as the clincher: "It displayed Sam's panache for performance and crafted storytelling. He has shown to be adept at beautiful visuals and having a comedic touch, which is a great mixture to have. We look forward to working together."

Another example of Buchanan's light touch is this 2019 ad for golf brand TaylorMade. The early riser depicts the lengths golfers will go to enjoy a quiet, picturesque round, including a brutal 4.30am alarm and camping next to the fairway.
