 FOR today's toughest challenges 


As one of the largest video and event production companies in the nation, Mills James is bringing new production capabilities to the Cleveland region. And as one of Ohio’s Best Places to work and 100% employee-owned, we have uniquely empowered creative teams engaged in the cause.


Our clients’ video and event production challenges are accelerating. Chief among them is how to connect and resonate with audiences who have become more fractured and distracted but also more purpose-driven in their beliefs. And how to tackle those challenges with smaller budgets, faster turnaround times and fewer resources than ever before.

The solution is more integrated thinking across multiple creative disciplines, so be sure to surround yourself with a fun team of expert collaborators from all of those disciplines – writing, filmmaking, design, live event production, motion graphics, you name it.

Mills James backs you with everything you need in one place. On the video front, you can turn to us for anything from broadcast campaigns to newsfeeds to quick-turn social media videos. On the event front, we can help you design and produce anything from strategic leadership retreats to 5,000-person sales meetings.
