Meet Zach Warner of Zulu Whiskey Productions in Design District

Today we’d like to introduce you to Zach Warner.

Zach, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
My career started in 1998 working for a production studio in Arlington, TX called Texas World Television. My job was putting together camera packages for film crews. From there, I was put on some nice gigs working with Beastie Boys, Incubus, and NSYNC.

After two years with TWTV, I moved on to further my career with Gibbe Productions in Dallas, TX perfecting my creative, producing and editing skills.

While I was at Gibbe Productions, I got an offer of a lifetime (at the age 24), to go on tour as a camera operator for MTV’s Real World/Road Rules. If you want to hear some wacky stories, I’ve got them. This tour was nuts!

After the MTV tour, I went on to work on several reality shows, commercial projects, and some great NATGEO projects.

Fast forward a couple years and here we are today.

We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc. – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
It’s been an exciting road for me. I’ve had the pleasure of working and learning from the best in film/creative industry.

I can’t recall any obstacles, but this industry is long hours, lots of competition and I think we are all trying to come up with that new idea, that no one else has thought of yet.

So, let’s switch gears a bit and go into the Zulu Whiskey Productions story. Tell us more about the business.
My business started out in 2007 as a multimedia production agency, we did it all. Web development, graphic design, photography and video production. Now, we focus just on photo and video.  I label myself as the company Founder and Creative Producer, with a doctorate in video production and photo manipulation.

I’m most proud of our history as a company, we have survived a long time and have worked on some incredible projects. And that if I can’t do it, I know who can.

I think we are known mostly for travel and tourism projects, but we have a wide range of clientele.

I think what sets us apart from other media companies is our long history and that we keep great relationships with everyone even our competitors. Not that others don’t, but we do it better.

Has luck played a meaningful role in your life and business?
I’d rather call it, being in the right place at the right time with a positive attitude. That’s what has driven my career.
