Storytelling is about two things; it's about character and plot.

George Lucas

We like to think about the setting too
The most amazing thing for me is that every single person who sees a movie brings a whole set of unique experiences, but through careful manipulation and good storytelling, you can get everybody to clap at the same time, to hopefully laugh at the same time, and to be afraid at the same time.

Covid-19 update

To the valued team members, partners and clients of:
Storyland Studios, PlainJoe Studios, Kitestring and Thinkware Technology Group

We are open for business and will continue to provide services and support.
We are here for you!

In light of recent orders from the California Governor and County Health officials, we have modified our operations. With our priority on employees safety, we will continue providing service and support to clients while following governmental guidelines and rules.

We are blessed to be open for business and ready to serve you! Our teams are still busy with digital, strategic and spatial storytelling for clients as diverse as the new NFL SoFi Stadium, Cedar Fair and Life.Church. We have seamlessly shifted much of our design and creative consulting work online and dispersed our teams to work in a coordinated fashion remotely from their home offices. Our fabrication “magic factory” has been granted an exception because of our construction work on Commercial Facilities/Critical Infrastructure.

We would be happy to talk to you about creative solutions for your organizations.

We have always been about creating both digital and physical connections for our clients and are busy helping many of them pivot towards facilitating online, digital and VR experiences to engage with those they serve.

We care about you as people first and your business as well.  Our personal cell phone numbers are below.

Anything we can do to help, we will do! That is our commitment as a senior leadership team.
