announcing BAREFOOT STUDIO PICTURES' debut film project shooting this summer...


This summer, Barefoot Theatre Company Ensemble Members, Anna Chlumsky, Francisco Solorzano, Lynn Cohen, Christopher Whalen with Barefoot Artistic Associates, Minna Taylor, Gillian Rougier and Resident Playwright, Jason Furlani team up to begin shooting Barefoot Studio Pictures' debut film with the short, FLOATING SUNFLOWERS...

Sometimes life inspires art, and inspires life.

FLOATING SUNFLOWERS tells the story of June, a still-life painter (played by Anna Chlumsky), and Henry, a fiction author, who are caught in an emotional winter, which has left them lost and unable to tap into their creative spirit. When a simple twist of fate exposes them to the symbols of each other’s dilemma, though, sparks fly, and – without ever meeting – they inspire each other from that emotional winter, into a season of “hope.”

Barefoot Studio Pictures - Founded by a small group of Ensemble Members from New York City's critically acclaimed Barefoot Theatre Company, Barefoot Studio Picutres is an LA & NYC based independent company dedicated to the production and development of feature, short and viral films.  
Reminiscent of the gritty, visceral and character driven pictures from the late 60's and early 70's era, we explore stories from a truthful place that ignite passion, incite laughter, and provoke discussion.  As bold, commanding and powerful as its theatrical partner, Barefoot Studio Pictures promises to take artistic risks to bring a memorable cinematic experience to life.
