Meet Len Shyles

Powerful Pencil Productions is the video production company of Len Shyles, PhD, The Ohio State University.

We specialize in the production of videos designed to reveal the creative process of artists and artisans at work. We also produce documentaries to educate viewers about current issues of public importance

We are happy to consider production ideas for videos you may want produced in other fields (i.e. sports, industrial, political, social, corporate, nonprofit etc.).

This site features examples of our video portfolio, where you can view samples of the kinds of videos we produce.
