Hiya, my name is Zack Lieberman. Welcome.

I I’m a filmmaker, producer, publisher, and digital artist/designer/developer/product builder based out of Brooklyn, New York; I’m from Seattle via Los Angeles (where I received my degree from USC). Click to peep my Facebook, Instagram, Twitterz, or LinkedIn. Download my CV here (pdf).

I co-created the Webby Award-winning “urban western” series The West Side and was named one of Filmmaker Magazine’s 25 New Faces of Independent Film (alongside fellow co-creator Ryan Koo); the magazine heralded The West Side as “ingenious low-budget independent filmmaking that just happens to be viewable only on the Web.”

Since The West Side, Ryan and I spent a few years in Studio “development hell,” trying to keep sacred our vision for the groundbreaking interactive transmedia property 3RD RAIL (its feature-lentgh script is written and we’re in development).

I’ve meanwhile launched an equally ambitious and wholly independent project: a young boy’s dreamed adventure through the chaos of New York City, called MAX & CHARLIE. I’ve turned the same script I wrote into a graphic novel, and we’re getting ready to turn it into a stereoscopic 3D feature film and video game. We’ve just released the graphic novel (it’s oh so lovely)… the film and video game are in development.

I am also the co-founder/owner of the media/production company EXIT STRATEGY. I have a professional background in design, film, web, and interactive development, and was instrumental in the launch of numerous high-profile projects as a Senior Producer at MTV; I more recently spent my days leading digital media production for an acclaimed Sony Pictures Television show and won an Emmy Award as part of the team.

I create clean, modern products that I want you to love.

I speak regularly on industry panels discussing the state of new media and I’ve firmly committed myself to a career of pushing the frontier of “transmedia” storytelling. I recently went “all-in” on 3D for a few years and started concentrating all efforts toward the development of feasible 3D workflows for independent filmmakers and digital content creators. Click to read the “Indie 3D” quasi-manifesto I wrote for Filmmaker Magazine a couple years ago. I’m basically getting ready to make MAX & CHARLIE into a badass lil indie 3D flick.

With that goal in mind, I’ve spent the past few years experimenting with, developing for, and writing on the future of independent 3D. Using an array of emerging 3D technology, I’ve shot and produced high-fashion and experimental 3D photography, art, and music videos, and in a good-will effort to help bring online 3D mainstream, most recently created FREE 3D GLASSES DOT COM. Since its launch, we’ve sent tens of thousands of free anaglyph 3D glasses to more than fifty countries worldwide; the site has partnered with the largest US-based 3D glasses manufacturer as an in-kind supplier and has business development in place to provide the backbone of marketing support for major 3D motion pictures and independent 3D films alike.
