Barkley relaunched Hershey's Take5 Bar as the ultimate REMIX and introduced a new generation to the bar via remixed experiences. Enter our spokesman, Nick Kroll, an avid fan from years before. In fact, his Instagram handle described him simply as "I like Take5's." Barkley released this video with Kroll cleverly on the inside of the sponsorship joke. His passion inspired the film we directed and edited.
In the summer of 2017, every major city in North America scrambled to answer one simple question – where should Amazon build their new 5 billion dollar headquarters? So how would Kansas City, a modest midwestern city without the size and resources of its flashy coastal competitors like Boston, Los Angeles and New York stand out from the pack? Kansas City set out to hack the very thing Amazon holds most dear – their coveted and highly protected product review system. Barkley Films directed, shot, edited and designed these short films, which spread quickly around the globe. Featured in over 1,600 media outlets including, BBC, Time Magazine, CNN, FOX, CBS This Morning and more.
"Can't Believe" is aptly named. For this cozy DQ holiday commercial, we looked to After Effects to turn a film that was shot on a record hot Los Angeles day, into the beautiful snow-covered forest. Barkley Films turned browning, dehydrated trees into a seemingly picturesque winter forest, digitally covered the ground in frost and changed the color of the sky and sun. It was a Christmas Miracle.

Directed and edited entirely by Barkley Films, this commercial showed the importance of the safety of Britax in a unique, personal and highly emotional way.
Being from Kansas City, we have sampled our fair share of Boulevard products. So when we got the opportunity to tell the story of Boulevard’s humble beginnings with UMB, we cracked open a couple Pale Ales and got to work.

Fun fact: We love pickles. Not eating them, just making them. Now that we have our automated canning machine, we have now actually run out of things to pickle. If you have things you would like to see pickled, please send them to Griffin @ 1740 Main Street KCMO in order to be featured on our new show- Does it Pickle?
