About Us

Alterna Films is a boutique production house specializing in producing the highest end HD digital cinema. Our crew of creative minds and technical specialists deliver quality content from original concept, through production and the shoot to post production and motion graphics. We have invested into the highest end HD cinema cameras , as well as state of the art production facilities allowing us to create powerful digital cinema from concept to finished product. No matter how big or small the scope of your project may be, Alterna will deliver.

Alterna Films was created in 1999 by Producer Jake Sarafian and Director Carlo Wein. Our first film under the Alterna name was called “The Struggle” the following year Carlo bought out Jake Sarafian and began producing the films on his own. He produced “Still Struggling” and then began working alongside Darcy Wittenburg and Colin Jones for the films “Breaking Ground” & “Reflection”. Reflection was Alterna’s big break into the International scene as our first visit to the Sundance Film Festival in Park City Utah landed us a 3 picture deal to air all films on FUEL TV (FOX Cable) in the global market. In 2005 Alterna grew with a few new faces in the production of the project “Fast Food” The stand out addition to the crew was up and coming creative genius Bryant Bell .

From 2006 to 2008 the cult classics Shrediquette, In transit, Apples & Oranges were produced. The year 2009 was a special year for us as it marked our ten year milestone. Knockout ‘the tenth round’ was released and was nominated three times at the Sun Dance Film Festival going up against Brain Farms That’s it That’s all for best cinematography in an action sports film.

Since the creation of Knockout in 2009. Alterna films has continued making films while diversifying as a production company through various commercial projects and a solid list of clients that now include Red Bull, DDB advertising, Mike Wiegeles Heli Ski, Grouse Mountain Resorts, West Coast Fishing Club, Vancouver Canucks, BC Hydro, Bell, Phillips/O’neill, Revelstoke Mountain Resort, just to name a few.

Our success can be attributed to the passion and hard work from the collective of people that are the foundation of Alterna Films.
