Cut 'N' Run Studios
CNR

Pittsburgh Video Production & Photography

OUR MISSION

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.

PRODUCTION FACILITY

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.

COMPANY HISTORY

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.
