Commercial and film production company Valiant Pictures has added Adam Zimmer as West Coast executive producer, further extending the bicoastal company’s presence in Los Angeles in response to growing client needs. With a career in film and video production spanning two decades, Zimmer will lead commercial production and business development endeavors for Valiant Pictures, expanding its West Coast footprint on the heels of campaigns for brands including Mountain Dew, Pepsi, ESPN, Glossier, and Dia&Co. Valiant is headed by EPs/co-founders Matthew D’Amato and Vincent Lin.
An early self-starter, Zimmer graduated Drexel University having already worked on the sets of two major motion pictures and over a dozen commercial projects. Out of school, he started as a production coordinator with SBK Pictures, swiftly moving up the industry ladder to production manager and then producer, orchestrating projects for brand clients including Pepsi, Macy’s, Walmart, Samsung and Nerf, and television work for studios Warner Brothers, NFL Films, ESPN, History Channel, Discovery Channel and MTV. Zimmer relocated to Los Angeles in 2014 to join Pursuit Productions, along with its divisions under the same umbrella including Imperative Entertainment, which has financed and produced features including Ridley Scott’s All the Money in the World, and Clint Eastwood’s The Mule.
Zimmer is currently finishing the upcoming documentary To What Remains, chronicling the work of the Project Recover Organization, a group devoting efforts to find and repatriate Americans Missing in Action since World War II.
