What We do


Do you have an interesting project you need completed: a photo-shoot, an engineering challenge, a film in pre-production? Independently 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.

Construction

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.

Set Design

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.

Set Dressing

In addition to design and construction, B&C refines every last detail of your set, including sophisticated, polished and thoughtfully arranged and styled set decoration and interior design service.

Styling

From fashion editorials, to commercial wardrobe, products, props or interiors - we cover it all! Both experienced stylist with a refined eye, we brings to set our years of accumulated knowledge, training, and on-set experience.

Props

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.

Photography Production

From concept, to camera - we run the gamut. Let us take the load off your next production by handing the details from start to finish. An experienced fashion editor, Chloe produces dozens of shoots every year, organizing New England’s finest talents for an diverse array of collaborations.

Costume Design

Whether by fabric or framework, from fairy tale gowns to clinking suits of armor, we can envision, conceive or create by hand the costume you need.

A Little Bit of Background


Portrait3.jpg

Chloe

An artist and storyteller at heart, my “means to an end” for my seemingly boundless creative energy was photography, and ultimately became creative direction, set design, styling, prop building, and all things related to fashion and art.

When I was a child, my eccentric and stylistically inventive parents encouraged me to develop my imagination. It started simply with my playing dress-up, but by seven I was ripping pictures out of my parents’ discarded magazines, assembling binders full of my favorites. I was homeschooled throughout middle school and high-school, which allowed me the time and freedom to explore my creativity throughout my adolescence, often through collage. By 14, I attempted to start my own magazine, and although that didn’t work out at the time, it was a great lesson in business early on. Throughout my teenage years, I experimented heavily in photography, creating fantasy and fashion images with my friends. Later, I attended The Rhode Island School of Design’s pre-college program, deciding ultimately to forgo college, desiring to focus entirely on working in the industry.

My first professional job came as an Editorial Assistant at New Hampshire Home Magazine, with duties ranging from research to editorial design, while simultaneously assisting the photo editor on a diverse array of sets including: interior editorials, products, food, portraits, and commercial advertising. As my skills developed, I later signed on as an assistant stylist at Ennis Inc., a full-range styling agency in Boston. For three years, I worked with a myriad of stylists on Ennis’s impressive dossier of clientele, including: Whole Foods, Glamour Magazine, Reebok, Wrangler, Boston Magazine, Edible, and Bravo TV to name a few. It was by this time I that had begun to get serious about my own body of work. I began orchestrating larger and more complicated photo shoots, involving deeper and deeper levels of creative expression, and their respective creative challenges. I began to hone my eye as a stylist, and photographer. It was this developing of experience throughout these years that would, unbeknownst to me at the time, later launch my career in film, and lead me into many other interesting avenues, such as tiny home building, TV appearances, and most recently, publishing.

The Barcelou/Batchelder path chosen is decidedly less travelled. Brandon and Chloe committed themselves to their creativity with a willingness to work from scratch so that their lifestyle could actually begin to reflect what they each envisioned. That takes courage, and an ability to do without what most of us view as indispensable.

Brandon

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.
