Born and raised Kaiserslautern, Germany Samuel Mcknight grew up as a military brat in Lawton, Oklahoma. At an early age nine, Samuel started recording music videos on his VCR and developed a strong passion for the world of music videos. Every summer Samuel would travel to Mississippi with his dad listening to music while visualizing moving images. It was on these road trips where his passion continued to develop towards an ability to tell musically driven stories in a unique fashion. When his military career ended in 2013, Samuel attended the New York Film Academy and has since found his home directing music videos and shooting photos in Los Angeles.
