About

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 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.
