About Jonathan

Hello! I'm Jonathan Barbee and I founded my company 20 years ago. We started out as Media Works Communications and as of this year we have changed our name to Barbee Media Group. Over the years I have worked in almost every position in the production industry. I have spent most of my career as a producer, camera operator, and editor. I have worked on small projects and multi-million dollar feature films. Some of my clients include Donald Trump, Tanya Tucker, Lions Gate Films, ABC, CMT, Military Channel, KOCH Entertainment, GAC, Converse, BET, Honda, Mercedes, Sunset Pictures, DYI, and many more. My team and I are equipped with HD and 4K cameras, a 4K drone, two Adobe edit suites, a 5 camera Live production truck, 14' jib, steadicam, sound recording, and Arri light kits. I actually own all of this equipment and do not have to rent anything. We are ready to go at a moments notice! Call us for your next project.
