The Origin of Blue Barn

As a boutique video production agency, the three Founders – Stephen Alberts, Vic Alavi, and Carlos Foster – are involved in every single video project. It’s that personal touch combined with years of experience that makes Blue Barn Creative one of the top video producers in San Diego.

Originally, Stephen came from the east coast where he was working as a video editor for Bumble and Bumble, a beauty brand in New York City. Carlos, a northern California native came through film school and focused on being a Director early on. Vic, a former Englishman, eventually made his way overseas after running a film photography studio in London. 

In 2012, the three of us found ourselves working for a cable TV network in San Diego performing a wide variety of roles: Producers, Directors, Camera Operators, Motion Designers, and Video Editors. As colleagues, we shared a desire to create quality content, to find stories that moved us, however, the management had different ideas.

We fought hard to raise the bar, but ultimately, we realized that we had to create our own company if we were ever going to satisfy our goal of producing great work. A place were a dedication to excellence was paramount and all else would fall in line. So, Blue Barn Creative was born and we've never looked back. 

We love making films that really move the needle for our clients. Nothing gets us more excited than when a client’s expectations have been surpassed, and when their brand grows as a result of our partnership. It is with that sense of purpose and intention that drives every project we take on.

After experiencing our friendly customer service and dedication to quality, most clients comment about and appreciate the easy experience and insight we've able to provide. While we are proud to have won several awards and produced several national television spots, our greatest joy comes from helping brands grow with honesty and authenticity. Naturally, this helps them tell better stories, increase audience loyalty and generate better sales. 

The story of Blue Barn Creative will continue to evolve, but our goal always remains the same: to create quality content, lasting partnerships and have fun doing it!

    Take a closer look at our Post Production Workflow:

    The Blue Barn Video Editing Process

    We use a multilayer process when editing all of our videos. We’ve been making films for 15+ years, and we know exactly how to extract the best from every video.

    LEVEL 1 - ESTABLISH THE MESSAGE - We carefully construct your story and clarify the messages using interviews, scripted narration, or presentations. We also establish soundtrack ideas to create the base layer of your film.

    LEVEL 2 - ADD THE VISUALS - Once we have your approval on the message (the Level 1 edit), we move on to visuals. We add all the visual elements that enhance your video. Everything we film and design helps evoke emotions and inspire the imagination of your audience so you can make a better, more meaningful connection with them.

    LEVEL 3 - POLISH - Once you feel that the video looks great and flows appropriately, we move into the polishing stage. Numerous technical workflows are done to refine the colors, smooth out camera movements, and the enhance the audio to sound balanced and clear.
