Special Guest Announcement: Sam Rocha, Director of THE BAGMAN!

We’re stoked to  announce that Sam Rocha, Director of THE BAGMAN , World Premiering at this year’s PLFF will be attending the festival and doing a Q&A. Here’s a little about him:

samrochaSam Rocha is an aspiring filmmaker from Omaha, NE.  He has been an avid horror movie fan from a very young age.  This genre influenced his style and his ability to think outside the box when it comes to creating, and in turn, paved the way for his own interest in videography to develop further.  
He has produced numerous music videos for various types of musicians and artists, many whom became regular customers, providing them clean, crisp visuals with his own creative flair and storytelling added to the mix as needed.  Sam also has four short films under his belt at the time of this writing.  Most of his shorts have been horror themed, which he filmed and directed, going back to his roots and original fascination with movies; though he has also delved into the comedy movie scene with one venture.  He has done video work for the local television program, “Dr. San Guinary’s Creature Feature”, as well as commercials and other video work for local businesses and a non-profit organization.
Sam is self taught and has an intense passion for learning all of the tricks of the trade, bringing his interest and hobby to a professional grade level of work, which has proven over time to only get better.  He plans to continue building on this foundation to provide nothing but quality entertainment to the audiences eagerly awaiting his next visual masterpiece.
