Samantha Brayson is a production accountant. Her credits, across a variety of roles, include The Bubble, The Little Mermaid, Pennyworth and Maleficent: Mistress of Evil.
“If people in powerful positions continue to hire and cast only people who look like them, sound like them, come from the same neighborhoods they grew up in, they will never have a greater understanding of experiences different from their own. They will hire the same models, curate the same art, cast the same actors over and over again and we will all lose." Beyonce Knowles-Carter
Samantha says: “I have worked in the industry for three years after bridging my accounting qualification with the NFTS Production Accounting for film diploma and I love it beyond words. However, these 2018 words of one of Beyonce Knowles-Carter world's most influential women, businesswoman, mother, and performer still ring scarily true. So much work still needs to be done and I'm passionate about being actively involved in this group to support positive change and inclusion in this industry. Having different voices at the table is so important for so many reasons from eradicating stereotyping to enhancing creativity.”
