  • I would recommend this business

Z-Channel was one of 8 video production companies that I worked with on a national project and they were by far the best. Doug was incredibly easy to work with and produced a phenomenally high quality set of videos. He has excellent intuition for what we were looking for and dealt with unexpected production problems with finesse and humor (at least it seemed that way to me). I would highly recommend Z-Channel to anyone looking for high quality, creative video work.

I've used other video companies and these guys were by far the best. Not just professional, but very creative. They did a great job and created some great videos. The final product exceeded my expectations. You can't go wrong with Z-Channel.

Customer Testimonials

ABSOLUTELY OUTSTANDING work. I elected to work with Doug and Z-Channel Films for a real estate property shoot. Tired of the 'same old-same old' pasted together 'videos' of still shots, I wanted something that really stood out and was memorable. Doug and his team NAILED IT. With what could only be accomplished through the eye of a true artist, Doug managed to capture the essence and the feel of the property in what the owner called a "breath taking" video. This is NOT your run of the mill video; this is amazing quality with eye for detail and a far superior product. I will definitely be calling Doug again. Amazing.


Wow. Working with Doug goes way beyond a great experience. An incredibly gifted director, editor, and filmmaker, yes. But those are just table stakes for Doug. Doug willingly invests his whole mind and spirit in a project, resulting in a super-pro production from start to finish. Even when you think your project is great, just wait. Doug will insist on making it transformative.


Doug at Z-Channel Films made a promotional video for my organization, Coal Creek Meals on Wheels. The process was seamless, he was so flexible and accommodating, and we couldn't be more pleased with the finished product.

Now we're not in the business of intentionally making people cry. But we are in the business of moving viewers emotionally. We do that by mastering and utilizing the oldest video production technology there is-storytelling. No amount of high-tech camera, lighting, or sound equipment can make up for a poorly told story. Stories are what grab viewers, keep them engaged, and move them to act, whether that's contributing to your nonprofit or buying your product or service. We come from documentary film backgrounds, where success and failure rest on the ability to tell a compelling story.


I head Public Relations for a $17 billion organization, and producing high quality, impactful visual videos to elevate our reputation and drive our business forward is key. We're especially picky about the video production teams we work with. But Z-Channel Films are a no-brainer. They always go above and beyond for us and produce amazing work that's in line with our vision and goals.


I can't say enough great things about Doug and his team at Z-Channel Films. Doug was a total pleasure to work with from start to finish. He went above and beyond to get the footage needed to tell our story powerfully and the final product did not disappoint. Doug understands instinctively how to pull out the critical and compelling aspects of an organization's mission and connect on an emotional level with the audience. We will definitely work with Z-Channel Films for future work. Creative Director Doug Gritzmacher is a News & Documentary Emmy Award-winner and has nearly 20 years of documentary production experience.
