Hi.  We're WARD 1 Productions, Ypsilanti's youth-driven creative agency.


WARD 1 Productions creates effective, authentic and fun content through photography, videography and social media management.  We also produce Ypsi’s Underground youth venue, because that's lit too.  

We are a team of committed adults and talented youth who believe that the creative economy offers a path to a sustainable, invigorating life to people from all walks of life.   Our customers' stories sing with powerful content from our own unique perspectives.  And everything we do, we do with pride.

Ypsilanti is the force. It has always been the force.

We are located in Ypsilanti's historic Ward 1 voting district.  For hundreds of years our neighborhood has been at the forefront of African-American culture from farming to civil rights.  We know our feet are on hallowed ground.  Our place grounds us.
