With 7+ years of experience as a Director of Photography, Sam Hicks built a strong foundation in the film industry. He's also the Ceo of Samshotit Rental which is a premier equipment rental house based in LA. Formerly at Cheddar, a business news network, Hicks served as a cinematographer for interviews and packages featuring CEOs of Fortune 500 companies like Microsoft and Delta. Through grit and determination built over the years propelled Hicks to produce two short films while in New York: “Outgrown” and “Varnel.” Both were created by predominantly black film crews and featured black cast members, which led to the idea behind a new production company in Los Angeles, CA. With Samshotit, Hicks plan to bring new, authentic perspectives to black cinema through compelling stories and visuals. Owner of Arri Alexa Amira.
