What we do…

Commotion Studios, LLC. is an event, video and multimedia production company based in Tucson, Arizona. We offer full audio/visual services for events large and small. This includes full PA packages, live video, LED wall and projection packages. For many events, we not only provided the on-site audio/visual needs, but often pre-produce video and media materials associated with each event.

For media and video production services, we offer graphic design, interactive event presentations, animation, and full video production services. Final deliverables have included everything from television commercial spots, web and event videos, corporate sales presentations, and animations.

Our company philosophy begins with our customer service and the way we treat others. We’ve felt that our growth is really dependent on this and has led us to be involved with some of the biggest and best events and companies in Arizona. Check out our portfolio for examples of our work.

We also offer a fully lit production suite, capable of capturing one to two person interviews. Come by for a visit at 6588 N. Oracle Rd, Tucson, AZ 85704.

Customer Service & Community Support

At Commotion Studios, we consider customer service—in concert with quality work and community support—necessary to distinguishing ourselves in the industry, advancing our talents, and making a lasting impact in the local market. Our commitment springs from our deep connection with Tucson, a community with which our company has always had a strong relationship. Our president was born and raised in Tucson, and all of our majority owners are graduates of The University of Arizona. As we all have extended family in Tucson, we look forward to raising our children here as well.

In light of our strong personal connection to the area, we have a longstanding tradition of community service. Whether it’s helping a non-profit raise just a few extra dollars on a pro-bono basis, or offering discounted services to offset production costs, being involved in our community helps us feel positive about our work. While we are a very small operation we take great pride in the fact that we have the ability to give back in large ways. With only three full-time employees, and an ever-dwindling economy, it can become difficult for us to manage our goodwill throughout the year. But, as is with anything, we feel that the rewards simply outweigh the high demands.
