About Samantha Babrovskie
Samantha trained in theatre design and has worked at a number of theatres, including Coventry’s Belgrade Theatre, Manchester’s Royal Exchange Theatre and Greenwich Theatre and The Kings Head, in London, creating scenery and props.
More recently she has worked for Cosgrove Hall Films and Hot Animation in Manchester, designing for stop-motion animation, including Pingu, Bob The Builder and Rotten Ralph. As well as designing for children’s productions, Samantha was also responsible for the original set-design concept and visualisation for Rick & Steve: The Happiest Gay Couple in All the World, an American-Canadian stop-motion sitcom.
Sam particularly enjoys working collaboratively with students on the practical aspects of production design, whether building or dressing a set, making props or sourcing locations and costumes.
