GALLERY 16: Kodak Student Awards - Charles Barker

Last year's winner of Kodak's Student Awards, Barker has recently been picked up and represented by Arden Sutherland-Dodd. He is about to release his first commercial for Lynx. A former student of the Northern Film School, he was also awarded Best of Brief and Best Editing for his comical commercial about a man obsessed with basketball. Drawing on his previous career working in the art department of the film industry, Barker is quickly gaining a reputation for good casting and strong performance based direction.
