Hi, from Austin, TX.
My name is James Webb. As a multidisciplinary turnkey video expert with over 10 years experience, I can personally produce, direct, shoot, and edit smaller video projects. A perfect solution for interviews, demos, conferences and corporate events, I offer everything from Photography, 4K Video and Audio to Motion Graphics and Editorial. No matter if the job strictly requires Production, Post-Production or both, I've clocked hundreds of hours working freelance on location and in the studio. Whatever or wherever the job, I can be ready on short notice.
If your corporation, creative agency, or public relations firm is interested in a collaborating partner with a little more skin in the game, Zilker Films, LLC (Est. 2007) offers complete production packages catered to mid-sized video projects. This can include everything from budgeting, scheduling, and hiring crew, to casting talent, securing locations, and liability insurance. This can also be with or without Post Production included.
Zilker Films easily scales to meet the requirements of large projects as well. Zilker Films can provide a complete list of services for both full-scale productions and high-end post-production. From brainstorming and script writing to 3D animation and music scoring, Zilker Films has repeatedly helped Fortune companies realize their vertical marketing campaigns with budgets in excess of $500k — on time and on budget.
I was born and raised in Louisiana and have been a Texas resident since 1991. I hold degrees in Design, Fine Arts, and 3D Animation in addition to being a musician. Out of college I began a professional career in Photography and five years later, having earned an Associate's of Art in 3D Animation, I started a new profession in Game Development – specializing in Lighting Design and 3D Camera Animation. In 1999, I moved from Dallas to Austin and in 2001 I transitioned into Film and Video Production.
As an award-winning Director of Photography, my work has been recognized by Canon, Chrysler, HBO, Panasonic, and Vanity Fair. My short films have screened at the Dallas Video Festival, DGA Theaters in NY & LA., Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, NY Tribeca Film Festival, Santa Fe Film Festival, SXSW, and The Isfahan International Short Film Festival.
