In this two-part interview, Paul Culley and Bob Haviland discuss their experiences at Cinecraft Production in Cleveland Ohio. Culley, the company's former owner, and Haviland, the former executive producer, discuss the company's start and its founder Ray Culley. (Ray Culley sold the company to his brother Paul in 1970). They discuss Ray Culley's time working in Hollywood and how he returned to Cleveland to found Cinecraft. Included in this part of the interview are recollections of Tri-State Pictures, an industrial film company in Cleveland.

Bob Haviland recounts how he started as an industrial photographer and how he became involved in motion picture film making. His early career included work producing slide films for industrial training and education. The company he worked for bought Tri-State, and that is how he met Ray Culley and eventually starting work at Cinecraft sometime around 1950.

Paul Culley describes his start at Cinecraft working for his brother after returning from serving in the Second World War. Paul worked in the sound department, and he talks about the technical challenges of producing sound for motion picture films with a limited budget on 16mm film stock.

The interview then steers towards specific film projects, including The Spoilers (Supermarket Institute), Milestones of Motoring (Standard Oil of Ohio), The Ohio Story (Ohio Bell Telephone), Long Ships Passing (The Lake Carriers Association), Magnificat (Sisters of the Humility of Mary), and Where's Joe (steel industry). They also talk in detail about working with and producing TV commercials for Papa Barnard, the founder of Vita-Mix.

They also touch on some business aspects of industrial film productions, including hiring professional actors to appear on film. Among the Hollywood actors mentioned are Merv Griffin, Joe E. Brown, Reed Hadley, and Otto Kruger.

About three-quarters through the interview, Neil McCormick, the then-current Cinecraft co-owner joins the interview.
