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.

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.

BLARE Media has quickly become one of my favorite partners to work with. Their level of communication is top-notch, which makes coordinating projects a breeze. The team that came to shoot our recent video ad was incredibly organized and professional. They made the whole process easy and enjoyable. And, most importantly, the finished product exceeded my expectations. BLARE Media consistently delivers high-quality work quickly and efficiently. I couldn't recommend them more!

It was a pleasure working with Blare Media on our video project. This was a complex project since we were producing 5 videos. One of which is a commercial on MAVTV. They accommodated all of our requests and were very patient with us. Their professionalism, quality and value can't be beat.

As a marketing & business development consultant, I am often called upon to assist clients with video-related creative and production work. If the task or project is simple and straightforward, I or one of my colleagues can typically handle it. But if situation requires tier-1 creative, cinematography, video editing, special efforts or logistics… I use Blair Media.

I met Blake & Justin in 2006, while consulting for a Central California ad agency. They had the P’s… Professionalism, Passion, and a fair Price. The projects we did were completed on-time and on-budget, and they always brought something extra to the work. Even in those days, they had a lot of good experience and creative ideas.

Since then, my consultancy has used Blair Media for: corporate videos, 15/30/60 sec television spots, start-up pitch videos, association branding, crowdfunding pitches, a short film, documentary style event coverage, aerial footage of larger energy projects, and equipment rental. They have also assisted us with project ideation and resolving complex technical problems.

If you are looking for a local, regional, or national-reach video production company that can provide the best creative, technical and logistics capabilities… I can recommend Blake, Justin and the entire Blair Media crew, without hesitation.

Good look on your next project!

We hired Blare Media to do post-event recap videos for a major trade show of ours that was in Texas this year. The bar was already set very high based on previous videos we have done, but they really stepped it up and exceeded my expectations with their professionalism onsite and incredible work.

Blake and everyone at Blare Media were very easy to work with on a commercial for 51Fifty, for
which I did the voice over. The commercial looked amazing. Can't go wrong with these guys!

I recently worked with Blare Media on a TV spot and could not be more pleased. They did a super job. They took our conceptual script and made it work with judicious revisions. The end product told our story very well.
