Meet Zachary Hollander of Epoch Visuals

Today we’d like to introduce you to Zachary Hollander.

Zachary, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
Epoch Visuals started out as a thought that turned into an idea which then turned into a conversation full of passion that the other owner, Nate, and I couldn’t stop talking about. We both have very particular and similar visions for our lives – Lives full of adventure, constant exploration and new experiences, meaningful connections, and taking chances that will change our lives. That vision for our lives paired with our love for capturing memories and telling stories through videography made us realize that Epoch Visuals was going to be something big.

Our biggest goal is to build a company that doesn’t just take a picture or press a record button. We want to produce and tell a real story – A story that is filled with complete raw emotions, whether that be happy, sad or jaw-dropping excitement. We want to make people feel like they are a real part of everything we produce, from real estate videos showcasing a home that first-time buyers will fall in love with, wedding videos capturing the smallest, yet most significant and heartwarming details of a couple’s special day, commercial shoots helping connect companies with their audience, or adventure-packed travels and the experience of new cultures and every amazing thing this world has to offer us. Above all, we’re passionate about telling someone’s story using our creative nature.

Has it been a smooth road?
It has definitely had its ups and downs. It’s a learning curve and I think we are handling it well. We have a lot of goals we want to achieve and we can’t wait to see what it takes to get there. You have to let your work for speak for itself, some people like a style while others don’t. Take opinions as you wish, just don’t let them discourage you.

So let’s switch gears a bit and go into the Epoch Visuals story. Tell us more about the business.
We are a two man team. We are learning and building and continually trying to better ourselves in our craft. WE TELL STORIES. We don’t just film, we don’t just take pictures and we don’t just edit our films together. We spend a lot of time and heart into finding a way to tell a raw story as creatively as possible. We film a lot of real estate properties (both commercial and residential). We also love shooting the raw emotion of people’s weddings. What our true background is in is action sports. We grew up doing these and the transition into capturing these types of things is our dream come true.

How do you think the industry will change over the next decade?
I think there will be a lot more people looking to branch off and be different, but a lot will look the same because when everyone watches each other’s videos, they tend to copy a certain style. I think that film school will be a thing of the past as you can almost learn everything by yourself as long as you take the time to do it correctly. I think that real estate video will really take off as it truly helps people from anywhere in the world get the feel for a house before they submit an offer. Video revolutionizes how people market or relive a moment.
