Barry is from Edinburgh but he started out making on air promos at the BBC in London where he learned to direct and won a lot of Promax awards and then teamed up with his friend Andy to form a duo called Albert and make commercials.
They had a great 12 or so years making ads for lots of big brands and getting in the D&AD book as well as picking up Cannes Lions, Golden Circle awards and there were a couple of arrows as well. Then he decided to go it alone and he hasn’t stopped working since, thanks to Nivea and PaddyPower, Simba and Kronenbourg, PG Tips, Suzuki, RBS and…well you get the idea. He likes making comedy and he’s pretty good at visual stuff too. And he particularly likes working with dogs, probably because his mum and dad never let him have one.
