About Neil Barnes
Since Neil left Bournemouth Film School in 1995, he has worked on some of the most prestigious and successful programmes on British Television. Starting on predominantly commercials, pop promo’s and films as an Art Assistant, he quickly became established as a very conscientious, reliable, kind and good humoured member of the art department. He also trod the boards as Prop Man, Dressing Props and Standby Props.
After several years he stepped up to Art Directing many popular shows such as Bo Selecta, The Catherine Tate Show, Black Books, Not Going Out, Life Begins, Noel Fielding’s Luxury Comedy, Russell Howard, Man Stroke Woman, Mount Pleasant, Al Murray, Lenny Henry and many others.
He stayed Art Directing longer than he had originally intended (albeit being offered many design opportunities) and took the decision that financially he would have a larger work base to fund the beginnings of a young family. He now has two beautiful sons thanks to an amazing wife who understands the needs of the industry.
Neil has now been designing television shows, promos and commercials and continues his positive, calm, very conscientious and ambitious approach to each new production that’s offered to him.
