California 1 Studios is a creative studio and video production company based in the Silicon Valley.

We make videos to help companies explain their products, show proof of concept or just to show their moms. Some call these brand films, others call them explainer or proof of concept videos. Either way, that’s our specialty.

 We write, shoot, edit, design and produce videos from start to finish. Our backgrounds have taken us from Hollywood (where we made stuff for the TV industry for too long) to Silicon Valley (where we work with innovators, entrepreneurs and technology outlaws).

Our priority is to work with like minds who are taking risks, and pushing boundaries. We’ve started companies ourselves, so we know whats it’s like to work with budgets of all sizes. Send us an email at and tell us what you’re up too.
