Producing & Artist Management Consulting

Producing

Zip Productions LLC is the producing and management arm of Zip Creative whose core mission is to tell universal stories through humor, drama and entertainment that inspire people to live authentically with courage and intention.  We support the work of filmmakers, theatre artists, fiction writers and related artists whose vision aligns with ours.

Artist Management Consulting

In rare instances, after coaching a client on an individual basis, an opportunity may arise to work together in a more hands-on way.  If the client has a specific project that is in some way aligned with Zip Creative or they are at a certain point in their career, we may enter into a Artist Management Consulting agreement with them.

Beyond the strategic work that we do together, this more in-depth process could entail, using personal contacts and our network of relationships to help them further their goals, advising them regarding representation, arranging and attending meetings when appropriate and actively partnering with the client in the development of their work and career in addition to the individual sessions.

The financial arrangement involves both upfront fees for consulting time and expertise as well as a back-end percentage taken from the project or any other work opportunities that organically materialize for the client as a direct result of our efforts on their behalf.

Some of the independent projects and/or clients that we are currently producing or representing include:
