Barigord Studios is a small multidisciplinary artist collective in Vancouver, BC, Canada.
The studio was formed initially as Team FOMONoMo (short for Fear Of Missing Out No More) to compete in the 2020 24hr Film Race by Filmracing.
After significant equipment upgrades over the course of months, Barigord Studios was officially formed to compete in the 2020-2021 100hr Film Race. Our entry, entitled ‘Your Top 3‘ was a Top 10 Finalist.
We created a Youtube Channel for our content, where all of our films can be found, and you can find us on Twitter @barigord. Many people know us for this video of a hummingbird catching snowflakes outside our front window.
Our next film, ‘Head Case,’ was created for the 2021 72hr Horror Film Race. It was not only a Top 15 Finalist, but won the award for Best VFX.
We are currently seeking funding and/or support to expand production, take on a webseries or two, and develop our in-house written content.
In addition to film-making, our artists are painters, musicians, stop-motion animators, motion-capture artists, dancers, writers, and even Arts Administrators.
