About Us

Great products come from great teams.

Our Story

Create A Video is a media transfer and video production company located in Mint Hill, North Carolina. Back in 1993, making a video comprised of a number of still photos was unheard of, but we managed to pull it off! We were the first company in America to offer this type of service to the general public. We have been expanding our services as technology has advanced ever since. For over 20 years, we have lovingly breathed new life into our customers’ precious memories.

What sets us apart from the competition?

All transfer, scanning, and editing services are performed in house by our experienced staff. We promise to never send your personal treasures off to a third party. Our talented team completes every project with care, from VHS transfers to promotional videos. Come experience the difference for yourself.

Scott Bigham

The staff are very professional and personal. They hold your memories with the greatest respect and care, as if they are their own. I took years old videos of our 3 children, one child we lost almost 15 years ago to leukemia. It took lots of courage to even bring that one in along with the cassette of his service. The staff was so kind and caring. Great business!
