Actor - Editor - Director
Bread's Crumbs Series - Lord Tyresius
Zion is also a filmmaker of his own; like Scott, he directs, writes, films and edits his projects. In April 2016, Zion played the rogue InGen employee Julius in Isarus. In March, he returned as Lord Tyresius in Hit the Crib, and in June he played the character for a fourth time in Bread's Crumbs 3: Scrub Slam. Zion also provided the special effects for the film's final battle. In December, Zion participated in the filming of The Legend of the Creepy Guy in the Woods, in which he has a minor role. As he did with Bread's Crumbs 3, Zion also provided the special effects for the film. Zion reprised the role of Lord Tyresius for a final time in the fourth Bread's Crumbs film, which he filmed from May to July 2017.
In September 2014, Scott began early planning for a potential fourth Creepy Guy film, and he offered Zion a lead role in it. Though Zion accepted the offer, when the film was confirmed in November 2015 it became the focus of a graduation project. Since Zion was doing a separate project, Scott wanted other cast members to have a larger part in it, so Zion didn't get a lead role. However, Zion had been cast as Zion Jones in Jurassic Shark III: The Revolution, who was set to be a main protagonist and a member of the new Shark Hunters. Zion was expected to start filming in September 2014, but failed to show up for filming on multiple days, so his part was cut from the film.
In May 2015, Zion finally worked on his first project with Scott, Dr. Troubleshoot, a short film in which Zion played the hitman Bitly. That same month, he began working with Scott on Jurassic Shark III: The Revolution, in which he played a crucial part in portraying masked InGen employees. The next month, Zion debuted as Lord Tyresius in Bread's Crumbs 2: Electric Boogaloo. He reprised the in August 2015 for Jumpa X, in which he had a supporting role.
Shortly after Bread's Crumbs 2 was released, Zion filmed a cameo as Zion Jones in Jurassic Shark III. The character was rewritten from being a main protagonist to a minor protagonist, who helps to fill in the film's backstory of the InGen employees killing off the Shark Hunters. In October, towards the end of the film's production, he also appeared as a rogue employee named Julius. Throughout the summer, Zion participated in filming for Jurassic Shark III very often, appearing as various corrupt employees.
In March 2016, Zion returned to play the rogue employee Julius in the Jurassic Shark III spin-off Isarus. The character was first seen in Jurassic Shark III when the film's final part was released in December 2016. Also in March, he reprised the role of Lord Tyresius for Hit the Crib. In June 2016, Zion returned as Lord Tyresius in Bread's Crumbs 3: Scrub Slam, though scheduling conflicts prevented him from appearing as much as originally planned. He is absent for most of the movie, appearing during the opening scene and the last fifteen minutes of the film.
From July to December, Scott spent most of his filming sessions working on The Legend of the Creepy Guy in the Woods. Despite not having a large role in it, in December Zion did film a smaller part for the film, participating in three days of filming. His character is a mercenary who works with Scott, a teenager obsessed with hunting The Creepy Guy.
Zion was later confirmed to reprise the role of Lord Tyresius for a final time in Bread's Crumbs 4: Mass Consumption, which he filmed from May to July 2017. He was set to provide the film's special effects, but scheduling conflicts resulted in Scott doing them instead.
On October 20, Zion signed onto play a major role in an upcoming short film directed by Scott. The film is set to serve as the midterm for one of his film classes - making it his first college film project. Details on the project have yet to be disclosed.
