Michael Barnard has been making fine art, films, original music, and written works since he was a teenager. Michael spent 7 years making films for the TM movement in the 70′s where he not only documented the activities of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi and made numerous documentaries about TM, but also designed, built and supervised a complete film post-production facility which included a state-of-the-art 16/35mm color/B&W motion picture film laboratory. Michael has resided in Los Angeles since 1978 where he founded Barnard Productions, which became LightningBolt PIX – a full-service boutique digital production/post-production company. LightningBolt PIX has produced and posted many commercials, music videos, documentaries, FX sequences, and feature films for clients such as HBO, Columbia Pictures, Sony, Warner Bros., etc.  Michael’s artwork has included many media, but over the past 10 years he has focused primarily on making large-scale photographic montage works called Photofields. Many of these unique works are in collections around the country. He has published a number of written works including poetry and essays. He also written numerous film scripts. He is planning to write and publish several books on a variety of subjects in the coming years.
