WHO IS DREAM BEINGS INC?
My name is Samantha Light, I am Australian born, and Brooklyn based.
I see shapes and patterns in everything. Visually, physically, energetically, and emotionally.
I see movement in the still, hear whispers in the silence, and find light in the darkness.
I am obsessed with balance, geometry, and the power of movement, color, tempo and sound.
I am obsessed with the human condition, with communication, interpretation, and how every moment changes everything, over, and over again.
There is a story in every breath we take, holding hands with albums of still frames and moving pictures dancing behind our eyes, and in between each heartbeat...
I am deeply connected to the streets, to the stars, and all that’s in between. I capture feelings, not photo's.
I have spent the better part of my life on sets, learning, creating, and mastering my craft. Being a Producer, Writer, Director, and Photographer over the decades is my way to hold people’s hands, to hold people’s hearts, and to share beauty in color and in gray scale.
We are nothing if we are not indulging in our humanhood, and sharing our experiences with others. We are nothing if we are not growing with the world, and those around us.
We are all artists, and we all have a story to tell.
I live in the here and now, and I tell stories, frame, by frame.

I began Dream Beings INC as a Production company, offering my services to the big boy companies, working with the best in the business, and feeling blessed to spend my life as a storyteller. Living on film sets and drowning in imagination, creativity and process. I still do this, and still am very grateful. But throughout time, the company's mission has expanded...
Over the years of being on sets and locations, I have spoken to thousands and thousands of people. Streets lined with Motorhomes or huge lights and crews yelling rolling and cut will alert people that someone is shooting something.
All different kinds of people. Young, old, all shapes, sizes and colors, all languages, and from all over the world. And all with questions, with ideas, and most of them also filled with fear, self doubt, or just didn't know where to begin.
Each person was so curious about how I got into the business and how they could learn the film business. They asked me questions like - "Do I have to go to film school? How do I get my film made, How do I get into festivals, how much does it cost to make a movie, What do you need to make a movie?
Folks would also say things like - I have an idea, I'm just not a good writer, I don't have enough money to make what I want, It seems like so much work I don't know if I could do it by myself, and so on.
Most of the questions distilled down to - How do I get the idea out of my head, and in front of my eyes? The overwhelming ocean, not knowing how to swim, and being compelled to dive into the sea.
Over the years of having people ask me these questions, the company and I soon turned towards teaching, coaching, and inspiring the new, the curious, the hungry and the frightened. Artists, writers, filmmakers, humans with a story, but without a map. Without money for film school, and without anyone in the industry in their contacts.
There is an old saying that goes like this... Those that can't do, teach, and that saying is as most sayings are, true for some. But there are exceptions to that rule, and I hold myself in the arms of that exception.
The consultation part of the company has for me become the most inspiring. I can help teach new filmmakers not only how to make films, but also tap into a whole new world of possibilities and creative freedom. When you have structure, creativity finds wings.
You can only master something by doing it, over, and over, and over again. The film business and the extraordinary dance that is filmmaking can only truly be understood, through obsessive experience. This experience and this obsession has been my life for several decades now, happily. An ever changing world built for lunatics, dreamers, and lost sheep.
I aim to help as many dreamers dream into reality what is behind their eyes and in their heart.
