About Your Host

Sam has years of experience in both the representation and creative producing worlds. After graduating Magna Cum Laude from the University of Pennsylvania, Sam worked in the Motion Picture Literary Department of UTA before moving on to work directly under the Head of Film at Will Ferrell and Jessica Elbaum's Gloria Sanchez Productions (BOOKSMART, HUSTLERS). He learned the ins and outs of what reps are looking for in potential clients, as well as what producers are looking for in potential partners. Having read and covered countless scripts for execs and agents he knows exactly what can make or break a writer in that critical stage of getting that first general meeting, or getting that same sample a greenlight further down the line. Having lived in the comedy space, Sam loves seeing new, innovative voices in that genre, but also has experience in smaller indies and larger budget family features.
