Product description

About the Author

Born in Dublin, Ireland, 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 Duellists. He began directing music videos in the early eighties for The Jam, Human League, and Adam & the Ants, with his work helping to inspire the formation of MTV. In 1982 he conceived and directed the award winning Billie-Jean, the first single from Michael Jackson's incredible Thriller album. More seminal videos followed, and at the 1986 MTV Awards Dire Straits' Money for Nothing won Best Video, with A-Ha's Take On Me awarded Best Director. His first film Electric Dreams (1984) was an immediate cult classic, while his second, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (1986), stunned the industry by becoming the first independent feature to break the $100 million theatrical mark. Steve would go on to direct more features, including Coneheads, Rat, Mike Bassett: England Manager, and TV network mega-series Merlin, Arabian Nights, Dreamkeeper, and Treasure Island, all garnering him a slew of awards including 27 Emmy nominations, 5 Gold Globe nominations, and a DGA nod.
