“ZenFilm is literally an extension of our marketing department. We have been partners in every production to date, and we look forward to continuing our partnership!
I have worked with Zenfilm on multiple projects & they are extremely professional & creative. Plus, their use of online networking/marketing their final product is remarkable. People end up seeing their videos all over the world. Hire Zenfilm, you won’t regret it. They are awesome!Amber Roussel, AH-HA Creative
We originally had the opportunity to work with Zenfilm during the spots they shot with SugarHill for the MyHouston campaign. It was and has been a continual “lovefest” since our first meeting. As a production team, the Zenfilm crew has the vision you envisioned way before you even thought about it. Their films shot in HD are superior quality, but the caliber of talented people who work at Zen is by far the best possible asset a company could have. If you could equivocate a company’s success based on the good karma its staff produces, then Zen would be at the Top of the Fortune 500! Ross, Merideth, Brittany, Travis, Scott and the rest of the crew are divine spirits behind the lens!Gina R. Miller, Culture Pilot
Ross is a creative genius in every sense of the word. His work is some of the finest in this market or any other. Look closely at the detail, the acting and the styling. Now consider that he is working within the limitations of very tight budgets. The Zenfilm team is great to work with. You will not be disappointed that you gave them your project.Felix Rhymes, Rhymes and Co.
