More than 15 years in the business of video production and post  


Nu Era Productions is a Virginia based company with a background in multiple artistic disciplines. Our experience in design, videography, motion graphics, video editing, sound mixing and others can give clients piece of mind that their video project is in great hands. Our expertise helps us to capture and creatively shape a story for any format from TV to social media.

Nu Era is uniquely positioned to provide dynamic media for companies with a story to tell. Our experience travelling the U.S. to capturing the moments of everyday people, or coordinating crews and call times across the country and hiring needed contractors allows us to produce the story that only your company can share, in only a way that we can tell it. If knowledge is power, then the core of our strength comes from our understanding of the industry and the tools used. So when working with talent, our direction pulls from their best to deliver the most effective results.

What they’re saying


“Nu Era’s creative capacity spans both sides of the camera and their abilities add value to the art of storytelling.”

Stephen Chavers
Creative Director


“Craig is thorough yet quick to understand your vision. He takes the time to ask the right questions - including the ones you weren’t even thinking about - to breathe life into video projects and other designs. When I needed an animated video that would inspire people to act and vote, he not only created a hero from mere words, but a lasting message through details, color and movement. Simply amazing work.”

Beatriz Lopez
Founder & Political Comms Strategist
4RCE Initiatives


“Craig is by far and away one of the best editors and videographers I’ve ever had the pleasure of working with. He’s incredibly creative; adept at impactful storytelling and we can always count on him to powerfully weave together political context and member-centric engagement. Craig is extremely good at meeting and exceeding deadlines—and frequently goes above and beyond to utilize our assets in ways we hadn't considered.”

Kate Thomas
Digital Director
NARAL Pro-Choice America
