Born Legacy, August 17, 2020

We have had the pleasure of working with Five Points Media over the past couple of months, and our experience has been nothing short of incredible! They are consistent and dedicated to making a difference to the projects they take on. They work wholeheartedly and professionally while bringing a natural enjoyment to the process. What could be long, draining days of work, are kept light and full of laughs. In a very comfortable environment, they create a sense of connection and teamwork to the work at hand. The creativity that is brought to the table results in a high-quality product that we are proud to present to the public!

Thank you to John, Tiffany & Yvette for of your partnership, support and commitment to growing our vision!

We are very grateful for each one of you and all that you bring to the table.

Love, Sash & Ash

"I would like to sincerely thank Five Points Media for all the work done to show its viewers the importance of why and what I do. Incarceration and successful reintegration allows an individual to fit back into their lives as well as their families lives! With community support, these individuals will become successful and break the cycle of any continued involvement in the Justice System! I could not continue to assist the number of those in need here without your support and donations!! Together we can make a difference! I thank you all!!!!!!"

Sherri Helsdingen

Coordinator Volunteer Services CNIB, March 12, 2016

"I work for a local nonprofit organization in Barrie and needed someone to help record a series of presentations at an event that highlighted new research around vision health. It needed to be professionally done as the videos would be posted on a national website, fully accessible for people with vision loss, and done on budget. A colleague referred me to 3B Solutions and they delivered on all points. The staff on-site were super friendly and accommodating, taking care of all details related to photography and recording. They worked with me throughout the process to ensure delivery of a high quality, accessible video that can be shared nationwide to educate and raise awareness. They also did this work pro bono, showing their deep commitment to supporting the community. Thank you John and the 3B Solutions team!"

Silent Swim to fight Cystic Fibrosis


Starting in 2015, our crew at both 3B Solutions and Five Points Media have been assisting open water swimmer Brenda Lussier-Neumueller in her repeated attempts to swim across Lake Ontario as part of a campaign to raise money to help fight Cystic Fibrosis. That ultimately terminal genetic disorder afflicts both Brenda's brother and our producers (step) daughter. We have twice gone out onto the lake with this brave swimmer, and we have helped her with promo photography and the creation of her logo. BTW, this 38 year old mother is especially deserving of our support, as in addition to bravely taking on the lake, including an eight hour overnight ordeal, Brenda is also completely deaf.
