Samuel Clemens Long Curriculum Vitae

About me: As a creator, I want to mess with you. A teacher once said that I walked with one toe over the line, and it’s still true today in my work as a creator/filmmaker. Being a certified (or certifiable) cinephile, there are so many times when I have wished other filmmakers would really push the envelope. Now I create those moments in my own writing and films.
