“There’s a difference between paying your dues and being abused.” - Kevin Sampson


Today's featured author and fellow podcast host is film critic, film director, and festival director, Kevin Sampson. Kevin and I have a fun chat about how he became a film critic, what made him start a film festival for people of color and tons more!!!


Key Takeaways:

Get as much experience as you can when you start out in anything. Especially if it’s film school.


“Know where you want to be and then study how to get there.”


Video is in high demand for staying relevant on social media.


“There’s a difference between paying your dues and being abused.”


Shoot weddings, promo spots and or commercials for companies can be income streams for those in film school looking to make extra money.


Absorb and initiate.


“Take risks but enjoy every moment.”
