Two souls meet and journey together. Just a simple analogy of any relationship. But what happens to us in relationships? How do we communicate? What do we say, what do we not say that we should? In this illustrated tale we are shown what can potentially occur when we stop being authentic and open with our loved ones, friends, and those with whom we are close. While not a children's book, "Stone Upon Stone" is as simple and timeless as a fairy tale or fable. It may make you think of someone in particular. You may wish that something was different. This story will compel you to do something honest and bold in how you share your thoughts, feelings, and joys. The book is not a "self-help guideline" nor is it a step-by-step guide to fixing a relationship. Rather it is a means by which to acknowledge a mutual breakdown in communication, without blame, or assertions of right or wrong

COMING FALL 2018
TWO of MORE. Here are the first two screenplays written by author, producer, and artist Brian Todd Barnette. The first, “Canonize Me” was adapted, produced, and featured in the Court Métrage (short film) of the 2012 Cannes International Film Festival. The second, “Coming Back to Leave” was expanded from a short film script into a feature length story. The short film version was adapted and filmed, and is also being showcased in film festivals around the world. These stories invite us to reflect on how we see our lives, and the events that shape not only who we are, but our perceptions of others, and maybe even our ideas of love.
“Canonize Me” opens a window into the purgatory a man faces when he is invited to review a few key moments of impact wherein his actions have serious consequences of which he was arrogantly unaware. Being able to look back and choose a different course of action, would he? Would anyone? He believes he has the right to do it over again. But does one really have that right or is that more arrogance?
“Coming Back to Leave” follows a young man who must do all he can to return to the love of his life before its too late. In undertaking such a frantic race against time, he also relives key moments of this shared life. He clings to the emotions and memories that built a relationship filled with love. These memories have come to define him, but can they sustain him?
These two stories are not the last. There are so many beautiful stories to tell.
