LA-based global experience design and production agency Thinkwell Group has announced the launch of Thinkwell Media. This adds a group of award-winning producers, directors, and designers to the firm’s in-house capability.
Thinkwell Group specialises in creating and masterplanning destinations resorts, museum exhibits, theme parks and themed entertainment attractions across the world.
The creation of Thinkwell Media brings in-house expertise in visual storytelling and cutting-edge media experiences. As a result this development greatly enhances the firm’s already strong expertise in media editing and production. The team joined Thinkwell around a year ago.
Working closely with major Hollywood studios, Thinkwell Media produces original and behind the scenes marketing content for a wide variety of movies and television shows. These include The Dark Tower, Shameless, Vikings, Ferdinand, Despicable Me 3 and more. Its clients include studio and video game producers and leading brand owners. The team is also responsible for media production for Thinkwell Group’s experiential projects.
In addition, the team has developed and produced commercials and celebrity-driven campaign content for international service clients and video gaming brands such as Blizzard. Since joining Thinkwell, the new media team has been involved in custom media production for a number of high-profile location-based entertainment and brand experience projects. These include the NFL Experience in Times Square and the Wahat al Karama Visitors Center in Abu Dhabi.
Heading up Thinkwell Media are Executive Producer, Mike Brosnan, VP of Operations, Renee De Soto and VP and Executive Producer, Cory Watson.
“To be really good at anything, you have to love what you do,” said Renee De Soto. “This is a hard-working, quality-obsessed group — and we definitely love what we do.”
Enhanced media expertise for Thinkwell Group
Joe Zenas is CEO of Thinkwell. He said, “We’re thrilled to welcome this talented team into our company. We’ve already seen amazing results integrating them into our workflow and projects. We’re also excited to see where our businesses can expand with their talents and look forward to leveraging their media expertise in the years to come.”
Thinkwell Media adds more robust editorial and post-production to Thinkwell globally. It adds extra weight to the comprehensive suite of media-focused services provided by the group. Media production has always been a turnkey capability at Thinkwell. However, the addition of the Thinkwell Media team cements the importance of media services within the company. It also formalizes Thinkwell’s media offerings under a new group.
In conclusion, Cory Watson said, “At our core, we’re a multi-disciplinary team who have spent years in the trenches together. We think the combination of our dynamic media experience and Thinkwell’s ideation and brainpower is going to have a force-multiplying benefit for our clients.”
