When searching for inspiration, filmmaker Sam Bailey seeks out brutal honesty and vulnerability. She says, "As long as we're telling stories that come from a place of discovery and reflection, then I think we're making the most sincere work possible."
Focusing on women and people of color, Bailey has an admirable talent for revealing truth and authenticity in her medium, specifically with her brilliant short form series, You're So Talented.
Bailey is interested in changing how filmmaking is perceived, specifically with production. She says, "I would love to be in a place where we create work on our own terms without having to cater to any type of agenda that doesn't align with our own."
Her sincere work is already gaining well-deserved attention; You're So Talented was recently nominated for a Gotham Award.
Some thoughts on art, life, and theatre. Stay positive.
