IDLEWILD

BRYAN BARBER (Written and Directed by/Co-Producer) makes the transition from award-winning music video director to first-time feature filmmaker with the release of Idlewild.

Barber's love for European cinema first spawned his creativity and has since helped him shape his unique vision and style. Over the past seven years, he has worked with some of the industry's biggest acts, including Missy Elliott, Destiny's Child, Kelly Clarkson and Ludacris…to name a few. Additionally, in July 2006 his directorial work on the Christina Aguilera video "Ain't No Other Man” garnered four MTV Video Music Award nominations, including Video of the Year.

At age 23, Barber began working with the group OutKast, and his video work for the song "The Whole World” went on to receive an MTV Music Video Award nomination for Best Hip-Hop Video. This partnership between director and artists would continue and help elevate Barber's profile, making him one of the most sought-after directors in the music business.

In 2003, Barber took his vision to the next level when he conceptualized and directed all the music videos off of OutKast's multiplatinum album "Speakerboxxx/The Love Below.” While his work on the videos "The Way You Move” and "Roses” was widely recognized, it was the video for "Hey Ya!” which garnered Barber the most attention. In 2004, MTV awarded "Hey Ya!” with Video of the Year, Best Hip-Hop Video, Best Special Effects and Best Art Direction. Additionally, the London Cadz Awards honored Barber with Best International Video of the Year, Best Hip-Hop Video, Best Direction of a Male Artist and Video of the Year. International acclaim continued when MuchMusic, the Canadian MTV, awarded Barber with Video of the Year and Best Hip-Hop Video.

Barber has also taken on ambitious advertising campaigns, such as a project for Nokia's sponsorship of the Sugar Bowl, and Victoria's Secret "Uplift” line, for which he created a heavenly wonderland in which famous Victoria Secret Angels could frolic. Most recently, Barber participated in a promotion for Sunkist, with the contest winner securing a role in and access to a Bryan Barber video.
