The Filmmaker’s Approach:

I am fascinated by the process that goes on in order for a director to make a film. It’s a long but inspiring creative procedure that takes many motivated artists to come together and see through the same lens that the director sees through. I am a strong believer that every successful film starts with a great story that inspires you to dedicate years of your life to turn it into a motion picture. Therefore, our process at SAM K PRODUCTION, a production company I founded back in 2008, is to always take the time in the writing process and to work with our seasoned writing partners. The goal is to make sure that we have a compelling script that will be utilized as a solid foundation for a successful film. Even when I am hired to direct a film with a script that is already in place, I still have to collaborate with the producers to make sure the script is stronger than ever before. Entertaining your audience is essential, but providing them with a relatable story that has substance is what makes the film an unforgettable one! As a director, I tell my compelling stories with lights and colors, so every frame matters and every talent on the set is a star. Film is a beautiful painting, but with sound and motion.
