Kettlehead Studios, located in beautiful Portland, Oregon, creates high quality entertainment with local performers and artists. We are a fledgling production company that is committed to empowering narrative artists to tell the best stories they can possibly tell.  We believe that storytelling, no matter the medium, is inherently collaborative, and that when many artists work together toward an artistic vision, they create something much greater than the sum of its parts.
