Hi, I'm Sam.

Sam Brooks grew up in Durham, New Hampshire and studied Screenwriting in Dublin, Ireland. Prior to finishing his degree, Sam was offered a summer internship at Impact Theory, a motivational web show based out of Beverly Hills. He decided to stay in LA after his internship and put school on hold to pursue screenwriting. Since then, he’s developed a pilot with RED AXE MEDIA, written a web comics series for IMPACT THEORY COMICS, and is currently working on a feature film with award-winning director JONNY SANTANA. He also hosts a podcast, SCREENWRITER SURVIVAL GUIDE, designed to help not-yet-screenwriters on their journey from LA-newbie to the red carpet. Currently, Sam is working in Story Intelligence at INKITT/GALATEA, a metrics-based hit factory specializing in serialized literature.

Sam has worked with the likes of RIDLEY SCOTT, STEVE AOKI, TOM BILYEU, and JIM KRUEGER.
