Bare Feet with Mickela Mallozzi


Thank you to everyone who has supported this special season of Bare Feet so far – we couldn’t have gotten this far without you!  We are now in our final stages of fundraising, needing to meet the final 1/3 of our budget goal by the end of the year – we have wrapped filming all 12 episodes, and we are now in the post-production and editing phase.  This last round of funding will cover post production, editing, distribution fees, marketing, press, and promotion.  With final funding under way, as long as we reach our goal by the end of 2021, we are still scheduled for a Winter/Spring 2022 release of Season 5 on PBS nationwide – thank you again for all of your support!

And here are some behind-the-scenes of running into YOU, our fans, while filming Season 5 of Bare Feet – thank you ALL!
