Who We Are
Cut.com is a digital studio striving to make people comfortable with ambiguity, one awkward conversation at a time. Our videos and games are for real people; they're sometimes awkward, often funny, and always thought-provoking. Sitting at the intersection of companies like Buzzfeed and Vice, we aspire to create content that is both viral and smart, highly produced and scalable, mainstream and cool.
We're a deconstructed entertainment channel that targets self-reflective explorers of curious social realities. The kind of people hungry for content that respects them as smart and isn't interested in stories that pander or prescribe to them.
