Henry Zalapa

Director

Henry is a writer and director from Sydney, Australia, currently residing with his wife Emma and son Marlowe in New York City, by way of Madrid, London and Los Angeles. 

Writing stories for as long as he can remember, Henry has had a lifelong obsession with cinema. When a high school English teacher read one of his short stories and loaned him a book on screenwriting, something clicked for him and he's never looked back. 

Henry's been in the industry full time since completing film school in 2001, working his way up through the production ranks from runner to director. He has directed commercial work for clients such as Canon, Bacardi, OPSM and Channel 7 Television Australia, working with agencies including Leo Burnett and Mr President. He currently has his first feature film in development.

Henry's real name is Enrique but no one in Australia can pronounce it correctly.
