I’m writing because writing compels me to read. Reading makes me write and writing makes us better writers.

I’m tapping into the feed here, and writing about whatever is resonating with my internal predictive analytics. I’m pretty good at clocking what’s coming next. You be the judge.  If you read from where I started in 2005 you can see that I’ve progressed mentally, thinking and communicating more clearly, partly the resut of reading more. Most of the photos and video are mine with others from collective endeavors.  “You know you’re a writer because at the end of the day there are pages finished.”  -Arty Nelson *please email typo corrections 🙂

Sam Slovick has been, or is, a writer, photographer, actor, recording artist, freelance journalist and indie documentary director/shooter/producer. His stories, photos, video series and docs have been distributed in a variety of ways including theatrical, indie-online and print media like Details, Vibe, Interview, Giant, Good, Tar, L.A. Weekly, Huffington Post, Neon, Nylon, SLAKE, The Face, LA Yoga Magazine, The Advocate, Curve, Mission & State, Angelino and a few others.

His first feature release, Radicalized (2016) has been called the definitive voice-of-a-generation millennial protest film. His next doc, Tear Down Babylon  is slated for a 2018 release. His videography and written work in the Yoga and Devotional realms over the last decade has established his voice in the terrain.

Initially making a splash as a singer/songwriter in bands in the 80’s New York club scene, he received an unconventional education under the tutelage of established writers and artists in lieu of formal education. 

He’s appeared in television shows and films including Jodi Foster’s Home for the Holidays and John Milieus’ Red Dawn.

As a singer/songwriter (BMG) his major label releases include Louie Says (RCA records) featured in films and TV.

As a journalist, his ability to access subjects and deliver stories has garnered credibility, enabeling his transition to director with series, On Skid Row (Reason Pictures) and Scenes From The New Revolution (Participant Media). His long form on the 2010 encampment at City Hall in L.A. for SLAKE, Big Tent Theory, has emerged as a defining piece on the Occupy movement. Recent long form journalism for Mission & State and other work posted on collectivemedia.la are representative.
