BIOGRAPHY OF THE DIRECTOR

Sam Larsson founded the director’s collective TRAKTOR in Sweden in the ‘90s together with a group of friends from film school. TRAKTOR became a fresh force in the TV commercial world with original and distinctive films and have been making award winning TV commercials and music videos ever since. The Painters took shape out of an impulsive idea and was realized with the help of his regular film crew and friends as a fun side project. Sam currently lives in California with his family and keeps working around the world on different film projects.
