Our Founder

Our Founder, Samantha Luque, is a first-generation, queer Latina whose journey embodies the spirit of resilience, creativity, and social impact. Samantha recognizes the power of storytelling as a means of empowerment and advocacy. Inspired by her own experiences, she created a platform where stories from all backgrounds could be celebrated unapologetically.

She began her career with numerous nonprofits in the Tampa Bay Area as she helped raise awareness and foster community for those in need. The stories she captured and the people she cared for sparked the match in her to create a safe space for diverse voices. Rather than waiting for opportunities to arise, she seized the chance to carve out her career path, fueled by a desire to create meaningful impact through storytelling. Samantha took matters into her own hands and founded our production company—a female, minority-run company specializing in storytelling through film and photography.

Since the company’s early days, Samantha’s mission has been clear: to elevate minorities to the forefront behind the scenes in the film industry. While the path ahead was uncertain, Samantha’s commitment to her vision fueled her determination. Today, Samantha’s mission continues to guide our company as we prioritize projects aligning with our inclusivity and social impact values. With Samantha’s visionary leadership, we strive to create a more equitable and representative media landscape, one story at a time.
