SAMMI LEE DAVIS
What do you get when you let your kids watch too much television? Filmmakers.
I was born and raised in Loveland, Colorado. I grew up believing creativity was the connecting force in humanity. I was taught from a very young age about writing, which grew into a desire to direct and which I then discovered the ability to edit.
Currently I am an independent contracting editor/videographer. I have a Bachelor's in Communications with a Concentration in Cinema Arts and an Emphasis in Production from Vanguard University. So not only can I make a compelling video, but I can also talk your ear off effectively.
I strongly believe in order to be a great director you should know other elements of film. It is important to be not only be a director, but also a cinematographer, an editor, boom operator, key grip, assistant director, and etc. Not knowing how one element of filmmaking works would be a disadvantage to me.
My style of filmmaking, from conception to execution, looks at human condition in a new point of view. Taking untold stories or ones you forgot, and creating lively characters that you can relate to. I aspire to direct like that of Bennett Miller, or Francis Ford Coppola who are devoted to real human emotions in their films. My favorite style of cinematography uses a heavy amount of wide shots and negative/positive space. This plays on the idea that humans don't always know what is there, but they know something is missing.
Look out world, because I have a story worth telling.
