Steve Barron

Director

Steve Barron started in films as a camera assistant on epic productions such as Richard Donner’s ‘Superman’, Richard Attenborough’s  ‘A Bridge Too Far’ and Ridley Scott’s ‘The Duellist’s’.
He began  directing music videos in the early eighties for The Jam, Human League, and Adam & the Ants, his work helping to inspire the formation of MTV. In 1982 he conceived and directed the award winning ‘Billie-Jean’ – the first single of Michael Jackson’s incredible ‘Thriller’ album. More seminal videos followed. Dire Straits’ ‘Money for Nothing’ won Best Video at the 1986 MTV Awards and A-Ha’s ‘Take On Me’ was awarded Best Director.
Steve’s incredible and eclectic CV includes Emmy nominated TREASURE ISLAND (Elijah Wood and Eddie Izzard) and cult comedies MIKE BASSETT ENGLAND MANAGER, TEENAGE NINJA MUTANT TURTLES and CONEHEADS.
