"Garet Scott and Kevin Thomsen are an incredible audiobook producing team. Together and separately they demand excellence every step of the process while also knowing how to keep things fun, creative and real. They have high standards and it shows in the end product of whatever they are involved in. Working with them I always know I will have a great time as well as be part of an excellent audiobook. I am a better narrator for having worked with them, they are excellent directors and producers."

He brings an actor's sense of drama, combined with a director's ear for pacing, plot and story, to every project. His professionalism and rigorous standards are unmatched in my professional experience. Working with Kevin is always exhausting, hilarious, and intensely gratifying."

Garet Scott is a wonderful audiobook director. She has a great ear, and she never loses patience, no matter how many P's I pop.
Dave Barry, author
"Kevin and Garet are an audiobook producing and directing dream team. When it comes to craft, they are the masters. They are both experts at producing and delivering polished audio programs with high-quality performances inside. That is something they do better than anyone else in the business. Kevin Thomsen is the kind of producer that can make the most impossible projects come true with ease. He was someone I'd call asking for the moon and he'd deliver a big beautiful moon, on time and on budget, with stars sprinkled in. Kevin is a tireless, funny, finger on the pulse kind of producer/director who's real genius lies within his insight and ideas on how to make any program even better. Garet Scott, is other half of this power team. She is her own right, a talented award winning producer/director who can pull the best performance out of any new actor or author. She has a great eye for up and coming talent, and over the years she has mentored young actors into seasoned narrators. Together, they create beautiful programs of distinction."
Patti Pirooz, Publisher
"Working with Kevin and Garet is always a great experience. First, their directions are specific yet paint a picture for the actor, so you get a tonal feeling for what they're going after. Second, they're so smart. You'd think they wrote all the books they record. And I trust people who are smarter than me. Finally, they're funny. I think that's always good."
Richard Kind, audiobook narrator and actor

YOU MUST REMEMBER THIS
actor, Hollywood legend
"I've always said Kevin's sensitivity with actors and ability to cull performances are matched with an instinct for the potential of score, sound-design, and post-production to turn on audiences. But it's Kevin's intuitive and deep grasp of narrative that is truly rare and makes his work shine so brightly."
Jacob Bronstein, Executive Producer
Random House Audio, and iBooks, Apple Inc.
"Kevin's professionalism and sense of humor make quick, fun work of what can often be a tedious process. I would work with him again, even if he wasn't my good friend."
Jon Hamm, audiobook narrator
Jon O'Hara's NY STORIES, John Hodgman's THAT IS ALL actor Mad Men, Million Dollar Arm, The Town
"I have worked with Kevin and Garet for many years. They are my go-to producers and directors for the highest quality audio production. Both are past masters of casting, directing, choosing and licensing music, and creating award-winning programs with incredible finesse. Their productions are always on time and on budget, which is equally admirable. As a fellow producer, I stand in awe of what they have been able to accomplish."
Maja Thomas, Head of Production
Time Warner AudioBooks, Publisher of Hachette Audio
"It is true that Kevin produced all three of my hilariously unwieldy audiobooks. But it would be fairer to say that he co-authored them. All the time I was saying dumb words into a can behind that glass, I never had any idea of the wizardry Kevin Thomsen was performing as I spoke, and would continue to perform until the final audio books were complete.
He directed countless different voices, both spoken and in song; and that is not to mention the sound effects, backwards tracking, and other audio gags that Kevin not merely recorded and managed but amplified with his own considerable imagination. I simply could not have done any of that without him, and not only because I do not know how to use knobs or levers. Kevin is a creative force in his own right, and I am proud to have him as a collaborator."
John Hodgman, author and comedian
Jonathan Davis and Marc Thompson recording SHAKESPEARE'S STAR WARS
"Kevin brought large doses of vision and humor to my books. What could have been mediocre audiobooks were transformed into full productions, peppered with clever winks to the listener and guided by a keen eye for storytelling. Under Kevin's direction, the audiobooks are not just recordings of the books: they are more like radio theater with all the production value you would expect from a professional. I wouldn't want my work in anyone else's hands — Kevin is a star."
Ian Doescher, author
STAR WARS series
"Kevin Thomsen's work on audio recordings of my novels really helped to bring them to life, including music and other features that drew listeners into the stories and kept them engaged. They were great productions!"
John Jackson Miller, author

"Whether I was draped in raiments or nothing at all, Kevin never batted an eyelash at my methods. A real pro."
