Cortina Productions

Firm Details

Cortina Productions is a full-service creative media design and production company specializing in the location-based media. We strive to tell stories in compelling and innovative ways. Our work can be found in museums, cultural institutions, visitor centers, and aquariums across the world. From the National Museum of African American History and Culture in Washington, DC, to the American Revolution Museum at Yorktown, to the San Francisco 49ers Museum in Santa Clara, our films and interactive experiences entertain, engage, and inform thousands of people every day.

Cortina Productions’ creative process has been honed to deliver innovative technological avenues for expression. We work closely with you to allow the stories to inspire media design. The media design then develops the experience, and the experience determines the technology we use. While directing the process through design and development we help establish and refine interpretive goals and primary messages. We then work to ensure the media is seamlessly integrated into the architectural and exhibit design. By working with AV systems designers we ensure proper presentation systems are specified for each experience. We user test, install our media on site, adjust color and audio levels, and perform final quality checks in the space to ensure the highest quality of our delivered work.

Cortina Productions embraces an accessibility-first approach to designing and producing interactive experiences and strives to ensure that the experience is inclusive and enjoyable for all visitors. We follow all ADA standards and employ design techniques and practices to increase accessibility. From our first sketches and wireframes to final software, our team considers how the exhibit will be used and experienced by different types of museum visitors.
