  • Production


    The direction, “lights camera action!!!” represents only a portion of the production process. CN1 can help your organization through the entire process, from planning and videography, to editing, graphics and delivery.

  • Consultation


    The versatility of video makes it a great way to leverage your organization’s limited communications budget. A CN1 consultation will assist your organization in building a strategy around the use of video and ensure its seamless integration into a wider communications strategy.

  • Support


    When your organization is a video production company, you need competent crew members- not another producer (though they’re helpful too). Contact Dan if you require lighting or camera support.
