The production partnership of artists Chloe Barcelou and Brandon Batchelder, B&C Productions serves a broad range of creative needs. Set, costume and prop design and construction, art direction and general production design, we are a multifaceted team that collaborates to offer large budget production value at refined cost. We are also the couple that brought you one of the worlds’ first expandable tiny houses on wheels.
Do you have an interesting project you need completed: a photo-shoot, an engineering challenge, a film in pre-production? Individually and through our production company, we work hard to bring your creative visions and musings to life. Below is a menu of services we offer, which can be utilized individually or as a whole. If you have questions, feel free to reach out and thank you for taking an interest in our work.
Production Design & Art Direction
Experienced both in production design and art direction, we approach each project differently depending upon the scale and budget. For larger productions, we are seasoned delegators and collaborators, while always remaining determined to get our hands dirty. For smaller productions, we make it work. Period. We pool our skills and resources and make it happen, no matter how challenging the situation. Regardless of the scenario, we love what we do and we love working with people, and we always strive to foster an atmosphere that is light, energetic, communicative and productive.
Incorporating both our art direction and construction experience, we at B&C use our combined set of polished skills to articulate a variety of set design needs, from architectural details, to interior design, from scouring to styling. No sets too big or too small, at B&C, we dedicate ourselves to bring life into your visions - and then some.
At B&C, we move smoothly from designing to construction via a fairly broad range of experience in the trades, crafts and arts, and the level of detail brought forth is the benefit. From carpentry to welding and metal working, to painting and sculpting, drawing, carving, crafting, casting, salvaging and repurposing, we tackle it all.
At this point in our career, we’ve assembled our own collection of some interesting props, but what we do not own, we have the connections to source, and what we cannot source, we can make ourselves.

*Bio Coming Soon
It’s hard to tell my story without getting lost on the tangent paths my life has taken, which, until I began working in film, never seemed to connect in a way befitting a proper resume. Here, regardless, is some of it:
In childhood, I was inspired by many things, much to the dismay of my school teachers. I marveled at anything handcraft: from the metal, stone and woodworking of colonial craftsmen, to the intricate, embellished and ingenious lore of the Native Americans; from the limitless imagination of artists’ renderings to the precision and power of engineering. If it could be made, I wanted to make it.
In my teenage years, I attended a tech school and learned some finish carpentry and framing. Midway through, my family moved, and I would complete my high school education at a night program, instead. By day, I worked for my stepfather, learning the tricks of the welding, in a short time leaving to weld large steel for a company that made the framework for large scale structures.
In my twenties, I would work in several trades, from electrical, to construction, to finish carpentry, while attending college, again at night, dabbling in a multitude of arts in my spare time.
Nothing has changed, save for the fact that I was fortunate to discover a career that allows me to make almost anything. Day by day, I design, draw, draft, engineer, craft, woodwork, weld, sculpt and paint all manner of serious and silly things.
