Today I talk with Emmy-nominated director Zach Lipovsky. Zach has directed and produced projects for Syfy, Lionsgate, Legendary and Disney. Following the recent release of his feature FREAKS, we talk everything from getting started in film, to directing for big studio productions and everything in-between.
Emmy-nominated director Zach Lipovsky started his career on Spielberg's filmmaking competing "On the lot" where he placed 5th out of 12,000 directors worldwide.
Zach has gone on to direct and produce projects for TV and film for Syfy, Lionsgate, Legendary and Disney where he was the producing director for the award-winning series MECH-X4, and the feature live-action adaptation of the hit series KIM POSSIBLE.
His first theatrical feature FREAKS was the biggest Canadian sale at ’ TIFF18’ and was distributed in over 115 theatres across North America, making it one of the largest Canadian theatrical openings of the year.
