BoltPIX Studios, located in Santa Fe, New Mexico since 2020, began in the early 1980s as Barnard Productions – a leading Los Angeles-based producer of music videos and documentaries.  As Barnard Productions moved to its longtime Santa Monica location wihtin the 18th Street Arts Center, it morphed into LightningBolt PIX, producing a wide range of award-winning numerous commercials, documentaries, features, image films, 2nd unit and visual FX sequences. At the same time, founder Michael W. Barnard was growing his fine art practice which has most recently culminated in a series of unique goldleaf and glass constructions called Emanations, large scale photo-montages called Photofields, a coffee table book – 100 Waves and creating a series of large-format prints from 100 Waves.

“…creating from the Field of All Possibilities.”
