Our Humble Beginnings 
Our Founder and CEO/Creative Director Sean Kinney started in theatre where he quickly gained a lot of acclaim. He started getting offers to choreograph fight scenes, add funny moments to productions, and help with practical effects. As Buster Keaton as his idol it was right up his wheel-house.

An Agency is Born
As he continued to work, he grew from stage into live events, TV and film. The areas he was asked to consult also started to grow as well, and matching his growth as a performer, and even expanded to cover marketing and advertising. It was time to make the company official to handle the growth.

How we work:
At our heart, we are story tellers that excel at connecting with people.
Every production, product, or situation has data that needs to be clearly conveyed so it can resonate within your targeted market. However, not every company understands how to best get that data across to the customer.  That's where we come in.  We use a specific type of lateral thinking to flush out and form visualizations of your data / needs / agenda; then we form it into a "story" with a beginning, middle and end connecting the audience to the story. 
There are a variety of methods to disseminate information and we are well versed in all of them.  We stay on the cutting edge of all the new technology and theories. Most importantly for you hiring us, is our method:
We approach the story creation similar to the presentation of a data visualization, and present it  like an info-graphic. With a data visualization you can clearly understand a pile of raw data, but a well designed info-graphic tells a story with an identifiable beginning, middle and end. Which is comparable to a good commercial; it has a clear conclusion or a call to action. 
Based on the DIKW Pyramid theory we take information and fashion a story. Plain data alone is not effective, it needs a context and meaning to make it informative, and when you have connecting information you gain knowledge of something, and knowledge over time turns into wisdom. We translate this approach to make a wise consumer. A wise customer is a happy one; and that means more success of your project and repeat business. 
Once someone connects to a story, they have a deeper relatedness and those personal connections are the most effective way to communicate. 
 
Why the name 1 Stooge?

We all have a background in comedy and the term can refer to one who creates or assists comedy.  Also, the term refers to one that supports others, especially in an unpleasant task. We like to help others who are stuck or need creative ideas to get through that unpleasant task. 
    Another aspect of the name came from the famous comic troupe, the 3 Stooges, since that name was taken, we looked to a historical quote from the Texas Rangers “One Riot, One Ranger”; we pride ourselves here at 1 Stooge in making sure all of our Creative Directors are diverse, all having been teachers, and all having worked in stage, TV, film, and also as writers. No matter what your production or product needs might be, … 1 Stooge is all you need.
