About Alpha Tree Productions
Production. Filming. Storytelling.
Emphasis on the underrepresented and quaint.
Alpha Tree Productions was created in 2011 in New York City by Christopher Birk. Originally from Denmark he came to the U.S. in 2007 to attend the American Academy of Dramatic Arts. After graduating he decided it wasn't enough to "just" do other people's projects and created Alpha Tree Productions with the intent to produce various projects with both important themes but also to educate, inform and entice.
With a special love for documentaries and horror films, Christopher has produced several of each of these but also the award-winning short film "Talking To My Mother", a film shot in Chinese. Two documentaries and a stand-up special followed, highlighting the art of drag in New York and around the country.
The very first project was a Stephen King "Dollar Baby" adaptation of the short story "Willa". This was made into a feature film and shot in 2011 and 2012. This project started his interest in being the "creator" of projects as much as collaborating and doing each and every project as a team effort.
Recently produced was the provocative short film "The Date" as well as a short documentary following a laid-off worker struggling after Toys'R'Us filed for bankruptcy.
Alpha Tree Productions is currently located in Philadelphia and works both on their own productions but is also involved in other people's projects as well as do various editing, sound design and vfx work for different clients.
