Services

Our core services that we offer

Plan

Pre-production is the key to every great piece of motion. The more planning the better.

Shoot

Production is our forte. From one man bands to full crew shoots, from the city to the most remote spots on earth. We’ve been a part of it.

Edit

Post production is what separates good from great. From sound design to colour correction we go beyond great.

Deliver

Web, festival, tv, commercial, short or long form we deliver, market, and align with distributors to gain huge impressions and views.

Design

Beyond our core services sits our appetite for creative design. Whether it be film covers, multi-page brochures, or full-on web development, we’ve produced it.

About

Our mission & our work

Dendrite Studios is an award winning full service film production house with roots in the action sports industry and experience in all realms of production. Every great video piece comes from a place of passion where we create unique imagery that informs and challenges the viewer. No matter what the genre we are here to make art. It may be to sell a product, it may be to challenge the status quo, or simply tell a story that needs to be told, but it will always immerse the audience in souvenirs from the frontier.

The seas are chaotic, 20 knot winds blow from the southeast, colliding and combining with a large southwest swell that was built during the previous 24 hours of 55knot+ winds from the open Pacific. We haven’t seen land in over a day and I’m spending as much time as possible with my eyes closed and body horizontal. But the outside deck beckons, I want to see the gnarly ocean, to see the bird and marine life that exists  more

Dendrite Studios – a Company History

0

With little more than a ton of ambition and a deep love of skiing, Athan Merrick and Nicolas Teichrob joined forces in 2009 to make a ski movie. But they needed a company first, and with a shared desire to create unique and stunning imagery, Dendrite Studios was formed. Playing off of the chaotic nature of dendritic patterns that surround us in the natural world, Dendrite’s initial goal was to showcase the ‘unseen’  more

Here at Dendrite Studios we believe in broadening our horizons to hone our craft. It’s a company mandate that when a project is presented to one of our personnel that will make that individual a better asset to Dendrite then by all means go for it. So here are a select few projects that Athan has worked on in the past few years outside of the dendritic rotunda.

Malibu, BC

Funny enough I’d never heard of Malibu, BC. California sure. As an avid surfer the fabled point of Malibu in the 50′s intrigued me. Today not so much. The crowds would deter the lore. Enter Malibu, BC, a place where crowds do not exist. No surfing, besides a little bit of tidal and wake surfing, but skiing. Real deal mountains of serious consequence without a soul in site. Dendrite Studios was brought into Malibu to document a remote and unexplored heli ski more

We made Parallels in 7 days. From start to finish. Pre-production. Production. Post. Grade. Sound design. Deliver. It was a lesson in constraints. Mental, physical, conceptual. Contrast that against a short that has been thought about for weeks or months. Then a week of production. Then a couple weeks of post. Which makes the better film? Which is more challenging and  more

Here men from the planet Earth first set foot upon the Moon. July 1969 AD. We came in peace for all mankind. Science cuts two ways, of course; its products can be used for both good and evil. But there’s no turning back from science. The early warnings about technological dangers also come from science.
