About this pro

How does your service stand out?

With Storyteller Videography, I've decided to provide added value to my clients by committing to telling a deeper story. This requires additional shooting time to make a more meaningful movie. However, you'll find that we are still competitive with what others are charging in the Twin Cities who are doing quality wedding films. Similar price, but a much more personalized story. We hate "cookie cutter" wedding video!

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

Seeing the final result... as a painter sits back and enjoys what he created on canvas, seeing what can be done with unused footage and photos is exciting. Put another way, it's not unlike taking the ingredients for a meal home from the store. While they can be enjoyed separately, they are truely memorable when mixed by the hands of a fine chef. I aspire to be that fine chef with your raw footage.

    Mike provided videography for our wedding. He was incredible to work with during the whole process. Prior to the wedding he was quick to respond to my questions and emails, he arrived at the wedding and captured everything I could have hoped for and the finished product was perfect. The post office was not kind to our first DVD and Mike responded to my email within hours and had a new one in the mail right away. His videography and service is remarkable.

    Mike is wonderful to work with. He spent a lot of time capturing our family's experience while our son was fighting cancer in order to help share our story. He went above and beyond by attending chemo appointments, interviewing our kids, going to the Mall of America for some family fun time, and really getting to know all of us. I am grateful for the time Mike put into our family. He is professional and very talented, and I would recommend him to anyone that really wants to capture an experience and not just a couple of moments.

    Mike is a complete professional and was so easy to work with. I approached him with an idea that I hadn't really thought all the way through, and he took off with it, producing a precious piece of history for us that I cannot wait to share with family and friends. After one day of filming with Mike, our family considers him a friend, and I would recommend him to anyone in the market for a videographer.

    My experience working with Mike was FANTASTIC. His talent, knowledge and experience gave me one of the most beautiful videos to help promote my business. Far better than I had expected. He took the time to get to know me to make sure the product we put out was an honest reflection of me and my business. I would HIGHLY recommend Storyteller Videography for anything. . .weddings, businesses, families. . .he is by far the best in town and I look forward to working with him again on future projects!!!

    Mike is amazing. He puts you at ease, and lets you just be yourself. I'm not super comfortable in front of a camera, but I barely noticed the cameras! Thank you, Mike! Your the best!

    Mike Thole did a fantastic job as videographer for my daughter's August wedding. He was very personable and professional to work with. Mike is a perfectionist and spent the entire wedding day capturing morning, ceremony, and reception highlights. We would highly recommend him and feel fortunate to have had the opportunity to work with him!

    Mike Thole created a high quality video in celebration of an employee that was retiring. We were so pleased with the quality of the work and value. Mike is extremely creative, flexible and a true professional. If we have projects in the future he would clearly be the person we would call.

    I really enjoyed working with Mike on my video project. Although I gave him limited time to complete the project, he exceeded my expectations with the final product. My company was very happy with video he created. I would highly recommend his services.

    Mike was able to create a DVD (and several copies) of my dad's memorial service for family that weren't able to attend. He had suggestions that enhanced the finished product and I couldn't be more pleased with the final results. The service was exceptional and the cost was very resonable. I would highly recommend Mix My Clips.

    Mike was so easy to work with. He was professional, timely, and produced a great piece for us. We will definately love to work with Mike again in the future!

    Michael was GREAT!! He did such a professional and thorough job. He thought of everything. It was really fun to see the end result. The one he did of my house was excellent and the realtor and clients all loved it. It was especially fun for me to see the transitions right before my eyes. I think anyone who has a house for sale (especially in this crazy market) would benefit from this extra touch. It is so much better than the average photo tours realtors set up! Michael also did a video of my sons sports history and that was really fun too. It will be fun to add to and watch as he grows older. This is such a neat way to organize videos and pictures! Definitely the wave of the future for digital pictures! ~ Thanks Mike!


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I have done a number of trainings with those at the top of the videography field. It's important to stay on top of the latest techniques, not only in the "nuts and bolts" of editing, but in story telling and being a true film maker!
How did you get started doing this type of work?
I've been doing video editing for 25 years "on the side" and teaching full time in an urban setting for 19 years. After accepting the early retirement package offered by SPPS in 2011, I've jumped into offering my video services full time! My desire to tell deeper stories (after working on more traditional wedding "music videos") has led me to launch Storyteller Videography in the fall of 2013.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Know what you're looking for. In the field of videography, there are so many options, styles and quality levels. Like everything, great videography may cost a bit more, but in the same way you'll regret skimping on your photographer, you'll regret getting videography "on the cheap." Try to shop quality, not cost. I'll compete with anyone on product, but I won't compete on price.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
I've been in customer service in various forms througout my life... as a waiter, chauffeur, teacher and local ice cream man. I know how important it is that the client is satisfied and I won't rest, or expect full payment, until my client is satisfied!
