Zak Douglas

My skills are mainly based in film production (as it is my passion), but these skills are easily transferable to a photography environment if needed!

Recently I worked as the Art Director of an indie medieval/action feature film where I spent my days turning modern spaces and objects into medieval ones to perfect the look of the scenes. In previous years, I have worked on multiple music videos in many different crew roles including: directing, camera assisting and also lighting work.

During film school I worked on around 20 short films per year over the 3 year course, this adds up to 60 short films worth of experience in almost every crew role.

I've mainly worked in art department or as a runner recently and am very comfortable with it, but I'm happy to try my hand at any crew role.

I'm versatile, a quick learner and very eager to work on just about any project you have in mind!
