BETWEEN THE TREES – In the can and ready to roll – Our next film is already completed.

Indeed we are on to our next project having completed photography on the next mind-blowing Brad Douglas film.

There is So much here- the acting, the technical (audio/lighting/image) and Direction is simply off the chain.

We have learned to just deliver and then sit back and watch the hard work transpire.

Telling stories with photons and electrons

Zenhouse films is continually seeking more ways to create unique shots, to tell stories with photons and electrons.

What’s your vision?

We have a menu of services and capabilities.

* Most essentially we just want to work on compelling stories from 30 seconds to feature length. The approach is much the same.

* Turn key crew to shoot an independent feature. OK

* Grip, Sound, Aerial, 2nd Unit, 3rd Unit, BTS/EPK – Special Operations? OK

* Full Blackmagic camera compliment; 4k BMPC, 2.5k Cinema BMCC, Zeiss Switar Primes, BMPCC’s? OK

* Gear, rigging, DIT, rentals, glass, one-stop, plug and play? OK

We are Visual Storytellers.

“Indistinguishable from magic”

Category : magic

* the above locked down image is a still from BESETMENT shot with the Blackmagic Cinema camera, RAW, f2.8, 800 ISO, Zeiss Switar 26mm f1.1 glass.

Clarke’s Three Laws are three “laws” of prediction formulated by the British writer Arthur C. Clarke. They are:

  1. When a distinguished but elderly scientist states that something is possible, he is almost certainly right. When he states that something is impossible, he is very probably wrong.
  2. The only way of discovering the limits of the possible is to venture a little way past them into the impossible.
  3. Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.
