Barry King was born in the small town of Centre, Alabama in 1966. He's wanted to
make movies since he was 6 years old. He recorded several audio adventures of
his own with an old Panasonic tape recorder he received for Christmas in 1976.
From then on, he was glued to movies like the Hammer horror films and television
shows like Star Trek, Gilligan's Island, The Honeymooners and others.
He moved to Georgia in 1983 and in 1989 began a long production assciation with
Dept.13. Barry started working on a public access television horror-anthology
show called "Twisted Realities". There his work ranged from directing,
writing and acting as well as recording sound and camera operator.
After a successful 2 years on the show his catalog of work began to grow. He
still continues with directing, acting, writing and producing at Dept.13. Barry also has many plans with SoLofty Productions.
His major entertainment influences are William Shatner, Peter Cushing, Alan Hale Jr., Benny
Hill, Gregory Peck and "the great one", Jackie Gleason.
As a director,
he credits filmakers Stanley Kubrick, Terence Fisher, Freddie Francis, Tobe
Hooper and Larry Cohen for sparking his movie making.
He is also a comic book
collector and loves motion picture soundtrack scores.
Looking ahead to the future, Barry is working harder than ever to produce
quality independent productions that he hopes will amuse and entertain you. He's
happily married to his lovely wife Kelley for going on 10 years.
