Cinecraft Productions collections

About this collection

    Cinécraft Productions was founded in 1939 by Ray Culley (1904-1983) and Betty (Buehner) Culley (1914-2016) in Cleveland, Ohio. The firm specialized in commercial productions for business, industry, trade organizations, and, in some cases, government agencies and social service organizations. The company has been in continuous operation since then, making it the “country's longest-standing corporate film & video production house”.
