Assistant Director, Offline Editor
Jim Maloney, a lifelong resident of St. Paul, Minnesota, has written and produced a wide variety of audio and visual materials for over 40 years. He began his career as a musician, composer, producer and audio engineer, writing and producing materials for educational and industrial organizations, radio and television programs, commercials, and record albums.
Jim attacks all projects with the vigor of the seriously self-taught. Since 1967, when he arranged and cataloged US Army Band music for three years, he began developing a cross-discipline career in music, sound, film and video.
After operating his own recording studio from 1970 to 1976, Jim was the in-house producer for studio work at Campbell-Mithun Advertising, one of the top ad agencies in Minneapolis during a period of noted Twin Cities creativity in the advertising business (1976 to 1982).
From 1982 to 1995, Jim continued his work as a freelance composer and arranger, taking on more tasks as a videographer until he switched almost completely to video directing and editing.
Jim has won numerous awards as videographer since 1995. In 1999, he began producing documentary programs of Civil War reenactments held throughout the country. His first effort, The Battle of Chancellorsville, won five international awards for creativity and editing, including two TELLYs. He won another TELLY in 2004 for Back On The Mississippi, a historical documentary that was seen on PBS stations in over 30 markets. Today, Jim is producer/director/editor/videographer for a variety of commercial and non-commercial clients though his company, ZIBI Video, LLC.
Jim lives in St. Paul with his wife, Megan, who helps with marketing and distribution of ZIBI productions.
