Hey! I'm Jon Sams, a film student at Florida State.

I'm also a portrait and lifestyle photographer on the side. Ask me questions. I love questions.

The Surreal and the Self has been selected for screening in two more festivals, Sunscreen Film Festival (May 1-4) in St. Petersburg and CineYouth Film Festival ( May 8-10) in Chicago. 

Also the doc is going to be screened this Monday in the Palm Beach International Film Festival at 7pm. Tickets are from $8-$11. I can’t make it but I hope you can. 



Yeah, I know a couple people.  My roommate actually got in after being on the waitlist all summer long and upon finding out that the school wasn’t going to be replacing two spots which were dropped at the last minute, she contacted the dean.  In the end, she got one of the spots. 

So stay positive.  It’s gotten a lot harder to get in due to all the changes the school’s been going through but don’t lose hope.

I was on the wait list for FSU Film and I got in. It’s common for people to drop out, don’t worry.
Like Ray says. Just stay positive.


Hey Alex! I’m so excited that you’re interested in Kyle and My’s work and the doc. I’m not allowed to upload it publicly on the internet just yet, but if you’d like any more information please privately message me or email me at jonsams.film@gmail.com I’d love to answer any questions you have.
