Most video formats including wmv's are compressed to a degree. That means you cannot effectively ZIP them to make them smaller. You can create a ZIP file but it will only very marginally reduce the file size. I have just zipped a 25mb wmv file and the ZIP file is 24.9mb
The only other way to reduce the file size is to reduce the bitrate of the file. You will probably find that the bitrate of your wmv file is about 8000. You can afford to reduce that to 5000 but anything less than that and you will get a considerable drop in video quality. The only practical way of sending a video clip to use a hosting site as you have done!

Better send file(s) using www.wetransfer.com
They will be kept on wetransfer servers for 2 weeks.
