A bit about me...

My name is Sam Felman and I make commercial and narrative content that sells, entertains, and aims to make the world a better place. My passion is telling stories about the beauty of human connection.

I'm meticulous about planning each shoot so I can focus on the performances during filming. My planning allows for better transparency with clients, communication with crew, and faster shoot schedules. Additionally, my signature visual aesthetic and skills in editing and visual effects give my work its special look and feel. Most people recognize my work for having great pacing, beautiful cinematography, and powerful performances.

I have a Bachelor of Arts in screenwriting from California State University, Northridge, and rent out my plethora props and costumes under my company name "Film Ethos." For my day job, I work in corporate as a writer, director, producer, and camera operator of mostly internal content, and I freelance on nights and weekends as a jack-of-all trades.
