Zalapa returns from New York after a successful 5-year stint at The Mill and MPC NY, where he produced for major global clients including Samsung, Spotify, Verizon, VISA, Comcast, Bacardi, Lincoln, Chase, Sprint, and Duracell.
He has worked with global advertising agencies including Droga5, TBWA\Chiat\Day, BBDO, Publicis, Grey, 72andSunny, Anomaly, and Wieden + Kennedy. During his time in the US, Zalapa also collaborated with world-renown Directors Noam Murro, Max Malkin, and the Bobbsey Twins.
Most notably Zalapa also produced post for one of the fastest turnaround Super Bowl spots ever made – a Droga5 x Sprint mobile TVC in 2018, which was shot and on-air within the space of 6 days.
Heckler has offices across Sydney and Singapore and an expanding new client portfolio that Zalapa will be working across. He has hit the ground running in 2021 producing post and VFX on a major brand TVC launch for Kia Motors, through Innocean and Revolver Director Matt Devine.
“Heckler is an award-winning and well-established powerhouse in the Industry. They have always appealed to me because of their full-service offering, highly talented team, and creative hub in the historic Paramount building. I am looking forward to connecting with our Production and Agency Partners across Australasia.”
Will Alexander, Co-Founder and Executive Producer of Heckler said, “as Heckler entered into our second decade in the business we were looking for an EP with International experience to further our expansion into new markets.
Carlos and I also both share a love of fishing and Yum Cha so the planets aligned. We are excited to welcome Carlos to our growing team and to see where he takes us.”
