About The Project
Being in your 20s is hard. Being in your 20s in LA is a fucking bitch. Being in love in your 20s in LA is almost impossible.
It's this big MESS. I like you. Do you like me? But I think you like me? Wait what is happening? Is this a thing? Is this not a thing? What are we?????
What do you do when you KNOW you've met your person, or at least you THINK that you've met your person, but they won't admit it? They won't DEFINE it...
Spell It Out In Neon is a film about that. That big 'ol mishmash of uncertainty, insecurity, and the total exasperation of being dragged along by the confusion of someone else for way too long. It's about finally waking up and realizing that life isn't going to just magically work out like it does in the movies. Life is about figuring out who you are, finding your power, and demanding answers because you FINALLY REALIZE that you deserve them.

An avid reader, Sam holds a Bachelor’s Degree in English from UCLA and paints her poetry around Los Angeles under the name of Tru(th). As a street artist, she wishes to express herself as candidly and honestly as possible while forming an immediate and intimate connection with anyone who stumbles upon her work. It makes her feel a deep sense of community in a city as huge and diverse as Los Angeles. SPELL IT OUT IN NEON will be the first film she has written, and it’s kind of a specific and personal backstory to one of her street pieces…
