Pittsburgh Video Production & Photography
We do not just point and shoot. Our productions are a form of art that require a story and meaning. It must come from a channel of originality and innovation. Your video should express a message and call to action with professionalism and creativity.
Cut ‘N’ Run is conveniently located just minutes from downtown Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. The facility is equipped with acoustically-treated studio space and audio recording room along with three editing suites. The studio promotes a unique work environment. Outside of designated shoots, staff is allowed to come and go, creating their own hours. This creates a less stringent environment and helps creative ideas flow.
Cut ‘N’ Run studios was founded by Jordan McMillen in 2005. CNR began in a small home office with the occasional intern help then grew to small production studio in 2007. In 2015, the Cut’N’ Run open the doors to a new full production facility in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and now has five full-time employees. The DBE certified business provides both photography and video production nationwide.
Jordan McMillen established Cut ‘N’ Run Studios in January of 2005. He began his career as a free-lance videographer shooting weddings, mitzvahs, and music videos. In 2007, he opened the doors to a new 2,500-square-foot production facility in Pittsburgh’s South Hills. From there he transformed a solo-operated, video production company to a full, multi-personnel media company. As the company grew, it expanded to commercials, promotional pieces, documentaries, live-streamed events, training videos, and more.

While attending Pittsburgh Technical Institute, Evan started an internship at Cut‘N’Run to learn more about the industry. In 2014, Evan was hired to a full time position.
Justin Mackey, Production Supervisor, graduated from Bethany College in 2007 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Communication: Electronic Media and a Minor in Writing and Language. While attending Bethany, Justin was selected as a National Broadcast Society Finalist for his short film, “Half Asleep.”A year later, he produced the feature length, student film entitled “numb.” Justin interned at Cut‘N’Run Studios in 2007 and soon after began his own company, MVS. In 2012, after six years of business operations MVS was merged with Cut ‘N’ Run. In 2014, Justin was promoted to Production Supervisor.
Alan completed his Bachelor of Arts degree in T.V. & Video Production and Photography Minor from Robert Morris University in 2014.

We wanted to find a Pittsburgh based creative studio that could stream sporting (MMA) events live, as well as create a HD quality product to be televised nationally on TUFF TV (43 million people).

We had Cut ‘N’Run do our entire wedding, from photography to videography and couldn’t have asked for a better team. They were professional, timely and fun to work with. Our trailer and video had both our families crying. They managed to capture the best day of our lives perfectly. They took their time with each aspect, and we couldn’t have been happier with the results! You will not be disappointed with these very talented artists!
