I am thrilled to share that I was interviewed by Voyage Denver Magazine for Shoutout Colorado!
For most of the interview, I speak about my journey of founding a multi-media production company geared towards giving voices to underrepresented topics and groups, while also making theatre/film accessible to people all over the world, despite the pandemic. I also talk about my personal journey of working in the arts, having graduated from a competitive acting conservatory to work as a professional freelance actor in New York City. The article touches on topics such as personal and communal growth, inspiration for social change, and the value of human connection.
I am so incredibly excited and honored to have gotten this opportunity to share my work, tell my story, and spread my mission. I hope you can give the article a read; it would mean the world to me!

I just finished filming for a new short film!!! Patterns (directed by Ian Wagner; in association with Big Rock Productions) is a film about obsession, mistakes, loneliness, and human connection.
Although Patterns was filmed during COVID, each cast/crew member had to be tested before filming and had to adhere to all safety precautions on set. Filming this movie during the pandemic was a really interesting experience and I will never forget it!
Patterns is currently in post-production. I will give an update once the film is out!!

Check out Dangerous Discourse, a film I recently wrote/directed, which just debuted worldwide on Vimeo on Demand!
Synopsis: "Dangerous Discourse, a Zoom film, follows the story of a group of friends learning to navigate having political discussions. Will the friends be able to see past their differences? Or will their disagreements cause a rift in their friendship? As we all know, discourse can be delightful... or it can be dangerous. Starring Matt Tierney, Candace Michelle, and Aidan Martinez, this is Samantha Bozin's second film as a director with Fentress Films. DISCLAIMER: This movie was filmed entirely on a laptop on Zoom during the COVID-19 pandemic."
I am so thrilled by the success of Dangerous Discourse so far! At this time, the film has been selected for ten international film festivals, and has even won an award at Andromeda Film Festival! Woot!
I hope you get a chance to watch this (uniquely made) film! Thanks for the support!
I am currently in rehearsals for On Brand Production's newest play, Entitled, (written by Isabel Lorraine; directed by Hannah Ciesil & Shiny) in which I play the role of Audrey. The play is about the effects of bullying and how social media can cause people to stray away from who they truly are. (to learn more about this production, you can read the featured article on Broadway World's website)
Entitled is opening on Thursday August, 27th at 4pmET and 7:30pmET and will be performed solely on Zoom due to the COVID-19 pandemic. To reserve tickets, please go to: onbrandproductions.org/august-series.
I really enjoyed working with the cast and crew! They were all so welcoming, kind, and professional. It was a great experience and I can't wait for people to see the play!
Life in a Vial is a short film that I wrote and directed, which debuted in May of 2020. The film stars fellow actors and my close friends, Leah Shifrel, Samantha Yestrebsky, and Miles Thompson. This is my directorial debut!!!
Life in a Vial explores the very relevant issue of insulin affordability for type one diabetics in the United States. Throughout the film, the audience gets an intimate view of what life is like for main character, Abby (played by Leah Shifrel), as she struggles with how to afford her insulin.
I am very honored that my film has been selected for eleven film festivals, including Lift-Off Global Network's First Time Filmmakers Fest 2020 (finalist) and the 2020 Colorado International Activism Film Festival (three time nominee). Life in a Vial is available to rent/buy on fentressfilms.com or Vimeo On Demand, and all the proceeds from the film will be donated to help advocate for affordable insulin!!
I was just in another short film! Not a Love Triangle (dir. Zoe Taylor/Zoe Taylor Films) is about two women (played by Samantha Bozin and Zoe Sophia) who fight over a stranger (played by Mark Claudio) at the park. It's a silent short that relies on visuals and music to tell the story, and it's super funny!

I was recently in the short film, The Paper Bag (Dir. Jenna Shefts/Jenna Shefts Films). The film is a silent short that relies on action and music to tell the story. It was super fun to shoot and I loved working with the entire cast/crew.

I was just in the short film, Staying Inside (directed by Shana Holmes). This film is SO unique and quirky! It follows Anya, an agoraphobe who attempts to find love from the comfort of her own home.
Working on this film was such a wonderful process! The cast and crew were incredible to work with and I am forever grateful for the experience.

Recently, I was in a short film called The Lineup (directed by Grayson Cole; in association with The New School). I got to play a super sarcastic character, and it was so fun!
I can't wait to share the film with y'all soon!
