The purpose of a storyteller is not to tell you how to think, but to give you questions to think upon.

You did an outstanding job of taking a very complex scenario and dreaking it down into an understandable and easy to follow educational video in a way that kept people's attention
Thank you, thank you, thank you! It was an incredible Luncheon this year…and it seems like we turned a corner on the proceeds! The video by Kevin Raichl at Visual Thinking NW was phenomenal! He captured the MountainStar story and brought the audience close to the three families who took advantage of the Parent Child Interaction Therapy. Of course the event is also about fund raising, and we did very well! Our results for the day of the event were approximately $70,000 at this point! Considerably more than the $43,000 in results at this point last year!
Thank you, Kevin, for your excellent work in producing the two Broadband Outreach and Strategic Planning Videos. I appreciated all your help and guidance in creating a high-quality finished product. It was a pleasure working with you! Please feel free to share this letter with others as my strong personal recommendation of you and Visual Thinking Northwest.
Kevin and I have worked together for many, many years. He works well with all parties involved in a video production project. From the lighting talent, the makeup talent, scriptwriter, to the client, Kevin treats all with respect and expertise without being pushy or rude. Kevin's strength lies in his integrity of being always available when needed and doing what he says he is going to do, when he says he will do it. In video production it is important to update style and skills and Kevin is always adapting to new techniques and technology to keep his finished product at the cutting edge. I would recommend working with Kevin on long as well as short form video production from idea to completion. Kevin is a pro.
Every production Kevin takes on reflects the flair he has for powerful storytelling with sound & motion. You can be confident the quotes he writes for productions are guaranteed...you'll never be charged more after the fact, unless you change the game plan. Kevin has produced every type of video there is. Commercials, long form pieces for industrial, corporate and educational institutions. Web content, DVDs...There’s nothing he can't do, and do it for less than flashy agencies that spend their client's money on expensive lunches. The careful steps in the "process" he uses to gather information for a client's project, and then translate it into a broadcast quality finished piece are one of the keys to the success of Visual Thinking NW.
“Kevin absolutely nailed what OYCC was going for. He captured emotion and purpose in his interviews and then compiled them with beautiful cover shots and sound. You will learn that he is a master and in some ways a magician. His editing skills are superb, and his ability to compile footage and turn it into seamless dialogue is impressive.”
