PRODUCER + HEAD OF OPERATIONS
SAM BATHRICK began his career as a refugee caseworker in West Africa, interviewing survivors of war, a job that would ignite his passion for human stories. As a producer at Brooklyn’s Flatbush Pictures, he infiltrated the Firestone Rubber Plantation in Liberia to expose child labor practices and later co-produced the award-winning biopic RUN FOR YOUR LIFE, about the enigmatic founder of the NYC Marathon. He has since directed, produced, and edited branded content for companies like Pandora Radio, ESPN, Chobani, and Madison Square Garden. His passion for music and film has led him to all corners of the globe, directing the internationally syndicated travel show MUSIC VOYAGER and producing the History Channel’s 2-hour doc special THE STONED AGES. Combining an editor’s ear with an auditor’s eye, Sam also brings a wicked sense of humor to any producing challenge.
