This stylish British director began his career--while still quite young--working as a camera assistant on the films "A Bridge Too Far" (1977), "Superman" (1978), "Superman II" (1980) and "The Duellists" (1977). Born in Dublin to a film family (his father was an actor and technician, his mother a director), Barron knew his way around a film set as a child. He made his feature debut with the video-oriented "Electric Dreams" (1984), which won awards at festivals in Madrid and France. During the mid-80s, he began directing hit music videos for Madonna, David Bowie, Michael Jackson ("Billie Jean"), Dire Straits ("Money For Nothing"), A-HA ("Take On Me") and Natalie Cole ("Unforgettable"), among others.
