What We Do

We are a video production company based in Waterloo Region focused on telling stories that make a difference. We approach each project by working with our clients to develop a strong understanding of their purpose and the goals for their video. We use this understanding to best craft a meaningful story.


We believe that these organizations have some of the most important stories to tell. Video is the perfect medium to bring their mission to life. We believe in the good work that these organizations do in our communities and strive to align ourselves with values and passion their people dedicate each day to.


Whether it’s pitching your concept, celebrating your team, scaling your business, showcasing your product or making a sale, we know how important it is to tell a concise story that embodies your culture and communicates your value.


The true magic of what an organization does can often be found when their community comes together. We believe an event is much more than people networking and eating from the buffet. Each event exists because of dedicated people that believe in the work they do. We want to tell those stories.


We are passionate about the environment and healthy lifestyles. If your purpose is adventure and sport then you’ve come to the right place. We believe that some of the best stories occur when we get back to our roots and follow our passions to the best of our physical abilities.


Music and art hold a special place in our hearts. Being musicians ourselves, we understand the power artistic creation has to deeply move and connect us. It’s true music and art can play an essential role in any video, but they can also be the sole focus of a video itself! We love connecting with fellow artists to help share their passion through video.


Presenting academic research to different audiences can be challenging, especially when concepts are complex and difficult to grasp. Video can be used to present your research for grant applications, conference presentations, and to support teaching and learning.

What People are Saying!

  • I had the pleasure of collaborating with Barn Door Creative on a recent project, and would happily recommend them to any individual or organization who requires videography services.  Their dedication to understanding and flexibility with an ever- changing scope was impressive and extremely appreciated.  Naturally, the final product was above all expectations!

    Jared Foxworthy, Management Consultant

  • Tyler and the team at Barn Door Creative have done an outstanding job for the Chamber of Commerce in our event marketing and documentation. They are flexible and know what they're talking about. Day of production and post-production are well executed with very solid timelines for delivery. I would absolutely recommend Tyler, Matt, and Barn Door Creative for any of your video related needs.

    David Tubbs, Marketing and Communications Manager, Greater Kitchener Waterloo Chamber of Commerce

  • My team was very fortunate to work with Barn Door Creative on numerous occasions. We really benefitted from their creative visioning process, their flexibility and responsiveness (and the value for money). We’ll keep working with these guys as long as they’ll have us.

    Joanne Adair, University of Waterloo

  • Matt and Ty at Barn Door Creative were an absolute pleasure to work with. Their creativity, passion, and guidance through the entire
    process allowed our initial idea to become an ever better reality!

    Liz, Sustainable Waterloo Region

  • Having Barn Door Creative at our Tour de Bloc event this year was, well to put it briefly, easy. They came in the day before to scope out the gym and get the layout for the competition. The day of our big event the Barn Door team was professional and prepared even through all the chaos! On such a hectic day for us at the gym, it was a relief to have such a qualified, well prepared team with us for the day. The end product was a great video that our staff and members of our gym get to watch, post and flaunt again and again!

    Megan Yemm, Assistant Manager, Grand River Rocks

  • Barn Door Creative were very supportive in script formation and messaging, taking time to understand what we wanted to achieve and helping us distill our messaging down to the essentials.  Once we had the script  the video location,  shooting and editing fell into place very quickly thanks to Barn Door’s expertise and local knowledge. The results have attracted many favourable comments from clients and others who have visited our website and are looking for further opportunities to work with Barn Door.

    Graham Westmacott CFA, Portfolio Manager,  PWL Capital

  • The preparation and the planning was awesome….true professionalism.

    Lucas Rowe, EPYC Initiatives

  • We partnered with Barn Door Creative to put together amazing videos for our nominees. They are absolutely excellent, easy going guys, and it was a lot of fun to do!
