Sam Hudecki

Storyboard Artist | Creative Consultant

Sam Hudecki has gained some renown as a storyboard artist and concept designer through his collaboration on Oscar winning Hollywood films. His career has taken him from behind the camera to drawing out the first interpretations of a screenplay in visual form. Over the past seven years he has collaborated on six films with Denis Villeneuve beginning with Enemy and continuing with Prisoners, Sicario, Arrival, Blade Runner 2049, and most recently a new adaptation of Frank Herbert’s Dune.

He works closely with the director, cinematographer and production designer in the development of the visual language of the film. As the films grow in scope Sam provides an added value in charting the course of that first blush of inspiration to the application of these ideas by all the departments.
