Our Clients

Coming together is a beginning. Keeping together is progress. Working together is success.

Henry Ford, Founder Ford Motor Company
Because of the quality of our equipment and our expertise, we work regularly for numerous national and regional companies looking for a local video crew to acquire professional images in the area. These firms include production companies for ESPN, Outdoor Channel, Lifetime Network, NBC, ABC, CBS News, A&E and dozens of independents. For broadcast post-production, we’ve produced television content for Outdoor Channel, the US Olympic Team, TruTV , PBS, RFD-TV and Sportsman’s Channel.
We do commercials that air all over the west for Grover Electric and Plumbing, Real Deals on Home Décor, The Riverhouse and Sisters Rodeo. Locally, we work regularly with Cascade Natural Gas, Bend Research, Saxon’s Fine Jewelers, Mattress Factory, and radio stations The Twins, Clear 101.7 and 99.7 The Bull.


Our 30th Anniversary video was a serious challenge: customers all over the state, and numerous logistical issues. Visual Thinking handled all beautifully, and when done, the video made my boss cry it was so good. We were heroes. Nicely done!

Larry Blanton - Kirby Nagelhout Construction


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

Scot W Langton - Deschutes County Assessor


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!

Tim Rusk, Executive Director. MountainStar Family Relief Nursery


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.

Christopher Tamarin, Telecommunications Strategist Oregon Business Development Department


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.

Gena Zerbin, Account Executive at KOHD-TV Eugene, Oregon Area Broadcast Media


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.

Dave Stalker, Producer/Director at Visual Thinking NW, Inc.


“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.”

Doug Denning, OYCC Director
