our service models.
Much of the profit made through any commercial work we do helps to subsidize the Thought Bubbles we create for cause-related organizations and charities, non-profits, governmental organizations, writers, book authors, great thinkers, and all the like. If you’re one of those, see our non-profit/government model below. If you’re an interested commercial client, check out our commercial model.
For clients representing government or governmental organizations, non-profits and charities, and basically anyone that isn’t a for-profit corporation, we reduce our typical commercial rate by 30% .
We charge our commercial clients a fee for our service based on the length of the motion graphic, complexity of the subject matter and design, as well as the breadth of services required. Here’s what our rate typically covers:
Sound Effects and Mixing
All deliverables including Broadcast HD if requested, in any format necessary.
Your best bet is to get in touch with us so we can chat about your idea and come to a suitable rate. One bonus to note, is that the rates we charge for commercial work subsidizes our donation-based work (see above). So you’re doing some good! You can even specify what you’d like your subsidization to go towards, something we like to call, “Buy a Bubble, Give a Bubble” if say, you have a non-profit/charitable affiliate, or an organization that’s captured your heart that you want to see with a Thought Bubble.

Every year our Board of Directors come together to decide what issues we feel are important to cover for that year. In order to get those Thought Bubbles out, we seek voices of expertise on the chosen topic, be it an organization that’s given that topic lots of exposure, a celebrity, or a great intellect – we look for them to carry the Thought Bubble out to its intended audience. Not only that, but we want that voice to narrate the Thought Bubble, so it’s theirs. These Thought Bubbles are our core product, and can be told apart by their title, for example, “Micah White’s Thought Bubble”. They’re produced for a donation of an optional amount, and are meant to drive our mandate as an organization forward. But hey, if you fit any of the above and think you should have a Thought Bubble, you can come to us!
thoughts about us.
Some kind thoughts from past Thought Bubble clients:
“Smart Bubble Society were innovative in their approach to our project and delivered under tight timelines. We’re definitely open to working with them again and think they do great work.”
“Having now worked on two projects with the Smart Bubble team, I’ve been impressed by their dedication to getting the job done right, not to mention their patience in putting up with changes and revisions caused by both a demanding client and divine interventions. Their production standards are excellent, in both animation and audio, and they have received and given constructive criticism with ease. In short, Smart Bubble have been a pleasure to deal with.”
“Thought Bubble was extremely professional and fun to work with. It was exciting to see the project develop from start to finish, and watch our vision come to life through their technical prowess. Animation Ninjas indeed!
