Video Production Company

BLARE Media is a client-focused video production company concentrating on the development of powerful and creative videos in Fresno, San Francisco, San Jose, Sacramento, Dallas, Austin as well as all throughout the Country. We offer high quality, attention-getting results that are designed to achieve the specific goals and/or target markets of each individual client.

From image acquisition to final deliverables, we bring the best equipment, software, and industry-proven workflows to every project with one thing in mind: to produce great-looking content for our clients.

BLARE Media is experienced in servicing a wide range of clients and project types, including TV commercials, feature films, shorts, content for web streaming, corporate video, training videos, trade show loopers, and even Hollywood red carpet interviews.

We like to be a total camera solution for your project. Our rates for the gear are competitive with most LA houses but since we only do wet rentals, we include a Director of Photography with every package.

How It All Started

BLARE Media was formed in 2005 by filmmaker and technology buff Justin McAleece and entrepreneur and marketer Blake Barnett. Their mission was to create the best quality video productions possible for local businesses that did not have the large budgets that bigger brands might. To that end, they designed a completely tapeless, high-definition workflow which would allow stunning image quality while being much faster and more economical to edit than film.

Bonnie voiced a promo video for us as well as hosted a few of our Crew Talk webcasts. She is a delight to work with. Her professionalism and speed are top notch, as well her voice skills will make your videos come alive! You won’t be disappointed if you hire this superhero for your next voiceover project.

Jean-Luc Slagle


We’ve worked with Jean-Luc on probably 50 projects over the years. We value our organic and relaxed working relationship. We’ve done a variety of types of work with him through his company Scope Studios, but much of it deals with people in real-life situations living through trials, tribulations, and successes. Our work with him usually intends to be fairly naturalistic. Jean-Luc is thoughtful, competent, holistic, talented, and most of all a pleasure to work with.
Rickey Bird

Rickey Bird


It’s always fun to work with Rickey and if there ever was a person that just loved making movies, it’s Rickey. We’ve done lots of narrative work with him and has a relationship both as crew and as producers/directors with him as crew. It’s always great to have a connection with a person through a shared passion and for Rickey, that’s definitely filmmaking. Our very own Justin McAleece even wrote a page or two in his book that you can find here:

James Ramirez


James is a fun guy to work with and is always capable of keeping a calm demeanor and a light-hearted approach to the job at hand. We’ve worked with him on a variety of projects and even toured around Virginia with him for a couple of weeks on a shoot for the Virginia Department of Health last year. He’s a talented photographer and lighting technician/gaffer. He’s also a helluva karaoke singer!
Sara Bourbeau

Sara Bourbeau

Head of Production

Sara is a hyper-competent and reliable producer and the co-founder of Windsong Productions. We’ve worked with her about a million times on a ton of different types of projects and have gone all over the country with her and the team at Windsong for well over a decade. The has great taste and attention to detail and can keep a lot of moving parts moving simultaneously. She also knows all the best restaurants!

EDC Films

Director of Photography

Evan is a tall drink of water, but he’s quite relaxed and reliable as well. He makes beautiful images and is easy to work with. We’ve had him on set as a grip and a gaffer and Justin even worked with him briefly way back in his college days at CSU, Fresno. He’s talented and has a great eye and hopefully has some good stuff to say about us as well!

Matt Jeff

Camera Operator

We've been both on set and off set editing with Matt countless times since ~2017. His easy going attitude and ability to successfully wear many hats makes him a true pleasure to work with. Some clients/projects we've worked on with Matt include: Lowe's, Kiewit Service Awards, Proterra EV Bus, Robert Half Testimonial Videos and a Livestream for Smyle Creative Agency.

Doug Morris


We've worked with Doug since the very beginning (2005) and he's always been a tremendous asset to any storytelling process. Some of the projects/clients we've worked on together include: Better Documentary, California Raisins, Eye Medical Center, AXON & the Blu-ray Disc Association.
We have worked with Leonard for many years now and he's a go to gaffer on set as well as a karaoke superstar off set. A few projects we've worked with him are: Virginia Department of Health, PAC12, Super Bowl-SSC, Alarma Music Video & 183 Degrees-Bellafill.
We've worked with Joel on many, many projects (Microsoft, LeanData, Young Wooldridge, Poverelo House, TEDx...) over the last 10+ years. He's an amazing producer and always a delight to work with.

I have a good and trustworthy account manager that allows me to withdraw my profits anytime I want and I can monitor everything going on in my account when she is busy trading with her expert team and I don't have issues with pending withdrawals. I must admit that she's a very honest woman. I have no way of thanking her than letting people know about her services and recommend her for everyone to trade on her platform. She's 100% accurate and up-to-date. Kindly contact Mrs. Alicia Malone
