INDIE: Ray Zablocki




Ray Zablocki is a professional multimedia producer working in the greater New York area. After graduating from Parsons School of Design in 2006, with a BFA in Design and Technology, he began working as a freelance audio/visual producer. The culmination of his studies manifested in a short film entitled “Binding Silence,” which earned Zablocki the “Brown Jenkins Award” for Best Director at the 2006 H.P. Lovecraft Film Festival in Portland, Oregon.

Zablocki followed this success with a promotional video for Ogilvy and Mather, featured on Yahoo.com, before joining the Associated Press in the summer of 2006. It was there that Zablocki honed and crafted his journalistic skills as a multimedia reporter and audio/visual editor for the new media department: “asap.” When the department was discontinued Zablocki took his experience and diversified abilities to Conde’ Nast Publication, Inc. There he worked as a freelance contract video producer for their online business magazine, Portfolio.com. Zablocki continues to work freelance, lending his many talents to clients of all stature.

It is his attention to detail through all stages of production that makes his work stand out among the crowd. A dedicated professional, Zablocki makes the most out of his resources, like an indie film MacGyver. His personal character is sharpened on a stone of adversity and perseverance, which transfers to his work on an alternate plain of expression. He is able to achieve a visual clarity that is only present in the mind's eye of a reader, regardless of the source material. With each passing year and subsequent project his quality and execution only improves, concluding that his finest work is still ahead of him.
