As a multidisciplinary turnkey video expert I can personally produce, direct, shoot, and edit your smaller video projects. A perfect solution for interviews, demos, conferences and corporate events, I offer everything from Photography (Sony a7Rii), 4K Video (Sony FS7, a7Sii) and Audio (Sennheiser, Audio-Technica) to Motion Graphics and Editorial (Adobe CC2017, DaVinci Resolve 14). 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 you're a corporation, creative agency, or public relations firm and want a collaborator with a little more skin in the game, I can offer complete production packages catered to mid-sized video and photography 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.
And if your video production needs are broader in scope, Zilker Films, LLC can easily scale 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.

Hi, my name is James (Jim) Webb. I'm the owner and operator of Zilker Films, LLC., established in 2007. Born and raised in Louisiana, I've lived in Texas since 1991. I hold a BA in Design and an MA in Fine Art, with over 10 years experience as a working musician. Out of college I began a professional career in Photography and five years later earned an Associate's of Art in 3D Animation and began a new profession in Game Development, specializing in Lighting Design and Camera Animation. In 1999, I moved from Dallas to Austin and in 2001 I transitioned into Film and Video Production.
