Denver Video Production Company first to Produce Documentary for DirecTV


Z-Channel Films, a Denver video production company, has completed a feature documentary film for DirecTV. Z-Channel Films is the first production company that DirecTV chose to collaborate with as it ramps up its original documentary programming. Doug Gritzmacher and Steve Dorst, Z-Channel Films founders and producers, worked with Coupe Studios in Boulder on the post-production sound design. 


The film, “Jobs for G.I.s,” documents the struggles vets face finding a job when they separate from the military. Set in Los Angeles, which has the largest veteran population in the country, the film follows the journeys of five vets - one each from the Army, Marines, Navy, and two from the Air Force - as they try to overcome unique obstacles and launch new careers in the civilian world.

The film was shot entirely in the 4K format. It is airing on DirecTV’s Audience Network and is available via its on-demand “4K Showcase.”
