Welcome to Think Out LoudTOLThink Out Loud LLC began with the belief that no idea should be taken for granted. We offer creative solutions to tell the most diverse stories – ones that reflect the special work and compelling lives of our clients and their audience.
As a full service production company, we offer a range of services from scripting and producing to cinematography, editing, and motion graphics. But don’t take our word for it, check out our current production reel to see TOL in action!
The key to any successful project is an engaging story. Our clients do incredibly important work, and at the heart of that work are dynamic voices. Our job is to make sure those voices resonate and touch audiences – be they a world away or just down the block.
Whether it’s a character profile, a branding video, an educational film, or an in-depth look at an important issue – we aim to create powerful imagery that illuminates and transforms viewers. Our background making broadcast television and films guides our approach to telling visually rich, cinematic stories.
We love doing what we do, and work in a community of creative artists who feel the same. For each project we provide a team of artists, built to suit the project. Part of the magic is getting to know each client, their work, and the moment when experience and artistry come together to tell a story.
Movie-making is magic, but it doesn’t have to be mysterious. As experienced trainers and teachers, education is fundamental to our work. We encourage a collaborative filmmaking process and hope that, in the end, we have not only learned about our cleint’s work, but they have learned about ours.
TOL has been honored to have a number of its projects recognized in festivals and international awards competitions. Some highlights include back to back Silver Telly Awards, a CINE Golden Eagle Award, and an Emmy Nomination for TOL founder Michael T. Miller.
The best stories begin with a good concept. At Think Out Loud, we help clients conceive and script their ideas into a compelling narrative.
Producing is where the rubber hits the road. A plan is developed on how to successfully execute the script and complete the project on time and budget.
We want your footage to look great. Our cinematographers are recognized pros that have at least a decade of experience working on feature films and broadcast television.
In the edit room we put all the pieces together to form a fantastic finished product. Through our partners we offer broadcast quality animation, narration, color correction, and sound mixing.
Our projects take us all over the world. We are multi-lingual and regularly film productions in any number of dialects. As veterans of the field we know how to produce global productions for a global audience.
Our work is made to be seen. If you are unsure of how to share your work with the masses, let us help you develop an outreach and distribution plan.
