Sam Flash Productions is a freelance writing studio, owned and operated by Sam Vlas, specializing in producing stories and concepts for the entertainment industry. Build on and inspired by the magic of the great storytellers of the past, Sam Flash Productions strives to create meaningful and memorable stories that will delight, enchant and inspire your guests or customers.
Ever since man developed speech, it has told stories. Throughout history, the art of telling stories transformed ordinary people in larger-than-life heroes. It brought whole kingdoms together and ensured the legacy of many great civilizations. Sam Flash Productions believes that a well told story forges a connection between the storyteller and the audience. A connection is achieved if the audience is fully immersed, by means of a memorable story with relatable characters, set in extraordinary worlds.
Sam Flash Productions believes in the power and magic that stories hold and wants to help you with harnessing this power, in order to forge strong connections between you and your guests. Whether it’s a large theme park, an indie video game or a small mom-and-pop establishment, great stories can be told anywhere.
Ever since he was a child, Sam Vlas has been telling and absorbing stories, whether it was through the creation of elaborate worlds with LEGO, improvising all kinds of quirky characters to play or reading many classic storybooks. This love for stories is still carrying on throughout his life.
In 2016, Sam obtained a Bachelor of Communications in International Event, Music and Entertainment Studies from the Fontys Academy for Creative Industries in Tilburg. One of the major learning experiences from that time was spending six months living and working at Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando, Florida. During his study and after graduation, he worked with several theme park design firms in different positions, but with the same passion for storytelling. In 2017, he wrote his first children’s book, commissioned for the Winterland Oss event, which had a run of 2,500 copies, was entered into the library of Oss and was awarded to the city council.
Sam Flash Productions is his latest venture, born out of a desire to make storytelling his career and a sincere belief that great stories can be told anywhere.
