West Hollywood-based below-the-line agency Intrinsic has merged with Dinedor Management in London, creating a 150-client multinational shop that will be known simply as Intrinsic.

Intrinsic was launched February 27, 2015, by partners Jonathan Silverman and Dana Salston and reps about 70 artisans, including four who are up for an Emmy this year: cinematographers Anette Haellmigk for “Game Of Thrones” (pictured above) and Jeff Jur for “Bessie”; editor Tom Wilson for “Mad Men”; and art director Halina Gebarowicz for “House Of Cards.”

Silverman started his career in the proverbial mailroom of the William Morris Agency and served stints at Smith-Gosnell-Nicholson, Paradigm and Endeavor (which became WME) before co-founding Intrinsic.

Salson began as an assistant at ICM, then joined Endeavor (where she started the voiceover department), and went over to the Sheldon Prosnit agency before co-founding Intrinsic with Silverman.

Intrinsic’s U.K. office is run by Rob Little and Jarek Zapora, who are now partners in the combined agency. Little started in the business over 14 years ago; Zapora joined the agency business seven years ago. The London location currently reps around 80 d.p.’s, editors, sound mixers and production designers for features, TV and commercials.

Clients include cinematographers Ruairi O’Brien (“Line of Duty”), Rasmus Arrildt (“The Killing”), James Mather (“Lockout”), sound mixer Malcolm Davies (“The Machine”) and production designer Brian Sykes (“Inside No. 9”). The shop has repped eight BAFTA nominees and one Oscar nominee.

The London office will cover features, television, and commercials for the U.K. and the rest of Europe. The Los Angeles office will do the same for North America and beyond.

“The vision for Intrinsic was to go international within the first year,” said Silverman. “Our shared philosophy and style with Rob and Jarek makes this friendly merger an exciting time for all.”

Silverman, Salston, Little and Zapora are the sole partners and agents “for now,” Silverman added.
