We create everything from social-issue documentaries to promotional and educational videos to dynamic time-lapses that show the wonders of nature. We aim to create beautiful videos with a mission and we love to work with non-profits, educational institutions and and many more. Based in Traverse City, Michigan we work both locally and internationally.
We’re a green business with a lean mentality. Aaron Dennis is our lead, and when needed, we team up with independent freelancers and other production companies. This keeps things flexibility, and allows us to support a strong movement of independant creatives, and deliver the best possible product with the right production team.

ABOUT AARON DENNIS Stone Hut’s founder, Aaron Dennis, has worked around the globe on film and video projects for humanitarian and educational projects. Aaron started shooting video at age 9 with his grandparent's VHS camcorder. A graduate of the University of Michigan’s Cinema Arts program, Dennis began his professional career in Malawi, Africa filming and photographing the work of Malaria and AIDS researchers. Later in New York City, he worked on several national PBS documentaries including the award-winning four-part “Supreme Court” series. After this we was commissioned to spend seven months in Asia filming the Tibetan communities of India, Nepal and Tibet to create a video archive of a rapidly changing culture. The importance of family and the natural world led him to return in 2008 to his beautiful hometown of Traverse City, Michigan. Stone Hut Studios was founded in 2011 and a year later released the feature length documentary, The People and The Olive: The Story of the Run Across Palestine which was directed and edited by Dennis. In 2014 Aaron produced and edited Stone Hut Studios' second feature documentary, Connected by Coffee. In 2018 Stone Hut Studios partnered with Detroit Public Television to create Beneath The Surface, a Michigan Emmy-award winning public television documentary about the Line 5 oil pipeline controversy.
