A long-time Houston-area actor, Sam Stengler has been in a number of productions over the past 40 years. Moving from stage to video, he co-founded LenScape Media, LLC in 2014, with the goals of employing new and veteran local actors and behind-the-scenes talent, utilizing the wealth of screenwriting talent here in Houston, and creating unique and compelling films.
Working with Tim Healy, his partner in LenScape Media, LLC, Norman Ray Fitts, an independent screenwriter, and Paul McKneely of Technoventure, Inc, he has co-produced and directed three films in the past year, in addition to a marketing/demonstration video for Devika Dance Creations. Using the studio and production facilities of both companies, he has worked hard to master the intricacies of video directing, green-screen videography, and post-production processes.
In addition, he has contributed to, edited, and performed services as a script doctor for several films, a number of which are in production, and one that is in development/financing. Several of his own screenplays are being considered for production, as well.
Mr. Stengler is also active in local Houston music circles, performing regularly in the Houston Symphony Chorus with the Houston Symphony, and working as a supernumerary in Houston Grand Opera productions.
A Texas native, Mr. Stengler grew up in Galveston, and attended the University of Houston, where he pursued a degree in Vocal Music Education.
