At Bear-Budget Films, our mission is to foster unique narratives that explore identity through boundary-pushing character experience in our effort to construct change.


Stephen Barnett has independently studied and accumulatively worked in Performance, Theatre, Acting, Photography, Playwriting, Screenwriting, Construction, Interior & Furniture Design, Art, Sculpture, and Cinema throughout his professional career because he knows these multiple disciplinary experiences help produce better storytelling.


He recently graduated with a Master's in Gender, Sexuality, and Cinema Theory from the CUNY Graduate Center shortly after a CUNY Baccalaureate for Unique and Interdisciplinary Studies in Theatre and Cinema production.

Consequently, he has produced, thus far, a filmography of twenty films of varied budget, length, cast, crew, content, and accolades.


Meanwhile, he spends his down-time producing 2&3-dimensional works of art.

In the vernacular of "Art-speak," these works are described as:  Mixed-Media Structural Assemblages, but he refers to them as: Photography Sculptures. These works relate his film/darkroom B/W image(s) with gestures of wood, found objects, and a touch of color to accentuate a line or to highlight. The purpose and pleasure he seeks to achieve is a symbiotic balance of beauty found in the "ugly" of trash; to instill a sense of pride from that which is shamed and discarded.
