We live and work in Barrie, and we support our community

We offer a non-judgemental voice to anyone with a social message

Five Points Media is a community-oriented and locally focused broadcast-quality on-line media service that offers a non-judgemental voice to those who are all too often ignored by mainstream news services. In addition to producing thought provoking social documentaries, we provide production crew and equipment free of charge for public events, and fully donated production services to many local charities and not-for-profit groups. We also offer dramatically reduced rates to vetted benevolent organizations and community-groups that charge for their services or which receive government funding. Please see our "About Us" page for more details.

Below are some recent examples of our work

Five Points Media is registered with the province of Ontario as a media producer. We have various writers and contributors who work together to provide a fully rounded vision of events in the city of Barrie, and nearby communities. Our mission is to tell the stories that don't make it past the assignment editors of mainstream media, as their agenda is to entertain the audience while ours is to research and report on current social crisis, while offering insight into who in our community is effectively helping to end or lessen the issue.

The anchor on the evening news in Barrie says it best when she signs off with the catchphrase
"That's our show for tonight."

Why and how do we help the community?

We are community-oriented, so profit is not our primary focus. Our goal is to help improve the lives of those who share our community, and to provide a voice to those who are forced into silence. For more than five years we have donated our services to a wide range of benevolent groups and charities. Some are household names while others have quietly tended to the needs of a small sector of our community with neither fanfare nor recognition.

We are a division of 3B Solutions

Five Points Media is not new. We are a division of 3B Solutions, a professional video production company that has been working in Barrie since two thousand and eleven. Our 30 years of international media experience includes dozens of credits in news, documentaries, and commercial productions. In 2014 the Greater Barrie Chamber of Commerce honoured our commitment to the community by asking us to present the 3B Solutions Retail Business Excellence Award at their annual business awards gala. Then, in 2017 the Women and Children’s Shelter of Barrie thanked us publicly for our years of contributions to their much-needed services. Throughout the years from 2016 through 2020, our crew has been recognized by local businesses and residents as the ‘Best Videographers in Barrie’.
