A young man wearing a stylish hat walked toward me, and I was ready. Samuel was very quiet and reserved, but was happy to be included in the project. He is a graduate of the dreaded Florida State University; dreaded if you are a University of Florida Gator. Samuel is 23 years old and recently moved to the area, from Los Angeles.
He now works for the Sarasota Film Festival, a 10 day event each April. https://www.withoutabox.com/03film/03t_fin/03t_fin_fest_01over.php?festival_id=1312
His work largely revolves around youth programs, getting high school students into film making.
Samuel was very interested in how I go about meeting and photographing people. He suggested making a short film of me at work. Maybe I'll need an agent! :-) If that were to happen, it would probably be during the summer. I'll keep my fingers crossed...
