We’re so excited to bring Artist in & the City series all around the world to festivals. and another we’ll announce soon have honored our project inspired by Marcellus Hall to document a lifetime of art told by the artist and his music.

Viewer review:

“Absolutely loved it! Firstly, he is so fu***ng interesting… The amount of awesome artwork playing through all of the stories cutting back with his interview seemed too good to be true -- so perfect. The art is so engaging and interesting that it really elevated the story - hearing him tell it while watching his art of events (or at least art that represented and worked with the story he was currently telling) was perfect. There is also something about the way he talks and tells stories that I can't put my finger on, but it was incredibly engaging. Honestly, I was sad there wasn't more -- when I finished the last one all of the sudden it was like 2 hours later and i had been online looking at all of his artwork and covers and trying to find a bunch of his older music.”

Carol & Johnny by the Barnicle Brothers debuts at the Tribeca Film Festival.

The unbelievable, decade-spanning, and surprisingly heart-warming true story of two of America’s most successful bank robbers, Carol & Johnny provides the opportunity for the real-life Bonnie and Clyde to reflect upon and record their unique love story in their own words. Comparing and contrasting the oral histories of both now-elderly ex-cons, Colin Barnicle’s riveting biographical documentary traces the history of the duo with equal intensity and intimacy, transforming true crime into a rich, literary epic.

We were happy to help in post-production on this project. Tickets below:
