About J. Thor Productions, Inc. 

Welcome to J. Thor Productions, where creativity meets technical expertise to elevate your events to unforgettable experiences. Our journey began with a simple belief: most people need a partner who understands the intricacies of event production, blending technical know-how with creative vision seamlessly. J. Thor Productions was founded on this principle over two decades ago. 

Our Founder - J. Thor Gogolen

In the year 2000, J. Thor Gogolen laid the cornerstone of what would become a pioneering force in live event production. His passion for event planning dates back to his teen years when he was designing sets for school plays. Combining his experience in audio, video, and lighting, he established a home-based company in his garage. 

What started as a humble venture has since blossomed into a thriving business that stands as a testament to our commitment to excellence in event production. J. Thor Gogolen's journey from school play sets to leading a dynamic production company reflects a profound understanding of the industry.

Our Culture

J. Thor Productions has always had a family-oriented culture. We work to create a company culture that sustains a creative workforce and encourages a healthy work-life balance. Our annual BBQ at the river is a big hit and everyone enjoys our after 5's, our Thanksgiving pot luck lunch and Christmas partied because they give us a chance to unwind after a busy season. Our employees have opportunities to attend events, share their work, and take time off to volunteer or learn new skills. And we’re always looking for new people to join our team

We help our team members grow in their current roles. J. Thor Productions host training luncheons and after hours learning for their employees and freelancers.

J. Thor Productions serves the people and organizations that make our city beautiful. 

We believe that giving back to the community and the employees that have supported us throughout the years is an essential functional part of our company and as individuals. Community involvement and volunteering are part of the way we do business. We are committed to making our communities a better place live and work and setting an example for the next generation. 

One way we connect as a team and with our community is through our service days. Some of the projects have taken place with Big Brothers Big Sisters, Habitat for Humanity and Keeping Pinellas Beautiful
