Zach is an award winning director of branded content, commercials and narrative films. Whether working with F1 drivers for the Williams F1 Team, Outlander star Sam Heughan for Barbour or the staff of a small, remote whisky distillery in Scotland, Zach approaches each project with the same intention; to tell moving stories about silently powerful characters. He enjoys marrying natural subjects with stylistic perspectives, and his latest work for Kilchoman Distillery saw him pick up an award for best direction at the Cannes Corporate Media & TV Awards and a People’s Choice award at The Lovies. His latest short film, The Watcher, screened at last year’s Cannes Film Festival as part of the Creative Minds Group curation.

The campaign film opens on an early morning Islay, wind and sea swept, as Kilchoman's owner, Anthony Wills anticipates the first harvest of the year. Out in the fields the barley dances in the wind, as if to signal to him and us that the time is now, the crop is ready
