When asked to detail his future career aspirations and areas of the industry that he'd like to tap into, Sam said: "Well, I suppose you know, creating Men In Kilts - really enjoyed that process. We’ve been working on a couple other producing projects, so I’d like to do more. 

"We’ve got a couple documentary ideas that we’re working on. And actually to be honest, directing - I’d like to direct something. There’s a project that I’ve been working on for a while. I’m like 'Should I direct it?' I’m still not sure. It’s something that I think once Outlander is ever over, maybe that’s a good time for me to step aside and think of something else," he told Forbes magazine.
