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.
1532 Beechview Ave. Pittsburgh, PA 15216
The facility is equipped with acoustically-treated studio space and three editing suites. The studio promotes a unique work environment. Staff is allowed to come and go while creating their own hours. Shoots and in-studio editing sessions are the only required set 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, Cut’N’ Run opened the doors to a new full production facility in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and now has five full-time employees. We are a DBE certified business and provide video production, photography, and web worldwide.
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 into a multi-personnel media company. As the company grew, it expanded to commercials, promotional pieces, documentaries, live-streamed events, training videos, and more.
Justin Mackey graduated from Bethany College in 2007 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Communication: Electronic Media and a Minor in Writing and Language. He began at Cut ‘N’ Run as a Videographer and was promoted to Creative Director three years later. In 2017, Churchill Pictures hired Justin as Director of Photography for the feature film, “The Unsung.” Later that year, Justin produced, wrote, and directed the independent short film entitled “Significant Other.”
Evan Angus has always had a passion for multimedia arts. In high school, he studied Graphic Communications at Eastern Westmoreland Career and Technology Center. He then moved on to graduate from Pittsburgh Technical College in 2012 with an Associates Science Degree in Multimedia Technologies with specialized training in Videography. 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.
Jason Cioppa started at Cut‘N’Run Studios in 2007 and currently runs the Photography division of the studio. He brings fifteen years of experience in professional photography services along with skill in the video production field. Jason also works full time in Information Technology. In 2015, Jason was awarded the Civic Recognition Award for his assistance in the Pittsburgh community.
Alan completed his Bachelor of Arts degree in T.V. & Video Production and Photography Minor from Robert Morris University in 2014. Shortly after graduation, he freelanced with a focus on internal training videos. Alan moved to lead photographer for Latitude 360 and provided services for celebrities such as Louie Anderson, Jim Florentine, and Scott Stappe.
