Jan 17, 2022

Cheli Clayton Samaras is a high school buddy of mine and has spent the past 25 years working behind the camera on the biggest movies of our lives, (think Spider Man, Team America etc) as First Assistant Camera A. She spills the goods on her journey, from Louisville to LA and we talk about women behind the camera, run-ins with handsy blow hard directors, unsafe working conditions, 14 hour days, why the IATSE is so important at this juncture right after the Rust tragedy, and why life is so good for her after all her long hours at UPS.
