Hi, my name is Tobias LaMontagne.
I am the owner & operator of Zap!Film, LLC
Yup, that's right! It's just me. Zap!Film is a single-member company.
Now you might be thinking, "how does that work?"
It's simple, really. I've always loved film. Everything about it. And from a very young age I've been experimenting with cameras, computers and sound. Always striving to improve, and learn as much as I can. Fast-forward to age 18, I was just beginning to venture into professional work. And with that came a decision; this was truly how I wanted to be spending my time and efforts. I was beginning to better understand the business side of film, and so the choice was made. In March of 2018, Zap!Film was born! Since then I have been working tirelessly to build this company, and spread the knowledge of the services I offer.
Over the past few years, I’ve been reluctant to “specialize” when it comes to my film services / company. But ever since the start (literally my first paid client project) it was clear that visuals for music have been at the forefront of my work. It’s what I’ve enjoyed the most, and it’s the service that’s had real interest from potential collaborators. One of the primary reasons this is the direction I want to go with my company, is because it’s a place I genuinely feel I have something unique to offer. The film and video landscape is extremely over saturated. Every category, anything you could imagine. There’s someone there already, doing ridiculously well at it. But when it comes to visual accompaniment for music, to me, I think there’s a style and feeling I can bring to the table that will actually make a difference to the people I work with, and the viewers who enjoy it. As a musician myself, getting to create music videos is like a dream come true. It combines my two favorite artistic expressions: Film and Music. And it’s a wonderful feeling!
So, I hope we have the opportunity of working together to create something beautiful.
