Sam Vladimirsky is an artist and documentary filmmaker whose hunger for a good story has taken him through the underground tunnels beneath the Met, inside the homes of New Yorker cartoonists, and onto remote farms, developing cities, gun ranges, catacombs, and costume shops. A New Jersey native, he is an advocate for the tiny but mighty team, and collaborative storytelling that is fearless and uncompromising.

 

He is currently the special projects coordinator at the Academy Award®-winning Breakwater Studios in Los Angeles. In his previous incarnations, Sam directed, produced, and edited documentary shorts for PBS and The Billboard Creative, co-taught archaeology at the Dalton School, worked in MoMA’s photography department, and served on the education team at the Met. He graduated from Rutgers University with a B.A. in History and French and earned an M.A. in Art History from University College London.

A partial list of things you can talk to Sam about includes: old school VFX, sour Coca Cola gummies, research rabbit holes, cats (not the musical) & the 1993 cinematic masterpiece Mrs. Doubtfire.
