Zenfilm was founded by longtime creative partners Merideth Melville and W. Ross Wells. Merideth is a talented producer and writer with a resume that includes the Travel Channel, NASA, independent documentaries, broadcast advertising and National Public Radio. Ross met Merideth as a cameraman on a Travel Channel gig and has gone on to become a recognized commercial director and editor with a heck of a showreel.
Zenfilm offers a full range of turn-key film and video production and post production services. What sets us apart is our highly collaborative creative process. Our creative egos were surgically removed years ago and that helps us listen, ask the right questions and ensure that the work we do together will exceed your expectations. Zen helps you grow your audience with powerful visual storytelling, a twisted sense of humor and striking graphic design.
Though Zenfilm is a Houston company, we travel all over the world to collaborate with our clients on their video projects. As you might suspect, The Travel Channel experience taught us more than how to get the best exchange rate at a bus station at midnight. Whether we are in Houston, LA, NYC, Moscow, Hong Kong… or even Dallas we are completely at home and hit the ground running.
Working out of a converted 1890′s paint factory in downtown Houston’s historic fifth ward, the Zenfilm team creates TV Commercials, business media, music videos and content for social media deployment. AAF ADDYs, AMA Crystals, A Wide Variety of film festival Awards, and even a couple of Emmys, line the tops of the cabinetry in Zen’s ultra-laid back, creatively intense workspace.
Not to leave out the all-important techno-geekery: Zenfilm’s post-production facilities offer Autodesk Smoke, Three Nitris-DX Avid Systems, DaVinci Resolve color grading, Maya 3D Animation and more. These things don’t mean a lot without the talented team of Zenfilm artists that leverage these tools to produce beautiful, thoughtful film and video that builds brands and gets results.
