As a filmmaker, Zach is best known for his uniquely askew television commercials and films which often feature eccentric humans and sometimes anthropomorphized creatures.
He has worked with brands such as Coke, Volkswagen, AT&T, and the NFL and has consistently won accolades for his directorial work, including Cannes Lions. Zach’s series of comedy short films for Kmart won a Webby Award and have received over 100 million hits on Youtube. Two of his branded shorts are in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art.
While driving in Los Angeles one day back in 2007, Zach heard a radio interview on the CBC’s As It Happens about one man’s quest to complete the only penis museum in the world, by obtaining a human specimen. Out of that was born the documentary film The Final Member which premiered at the Toronto Hot Docs International Film Festival and has since played festivals all over the world. The distribution rights were purchased by Drafthouse Films and the film has been released on Netflix.
Zach attended film school at both Queens University in Canada and the Tisch School of the Arts at New York University. Film and television representation is maintained at Anonymous Content.
