Sam Hampton Teaching Artist and Co-Founder

Meeting and working with Docs In Progress in its early days flipped a switch, so to speak, giving me the confidence and solid direction I needed to become a documentary filmmaker. In time, I helped take the organization to the next level – becoming a nonprofit, finding a permanent space, and creating what Docs In Progress is today. For them, I became the third founder. For me, I became a part of a special community of storytellers that included all walks of life, teaching and learning together.
