John Barker Director of Wonder Boy will be on BCR 104 FM

[ 0 ] July 21, 2016 |

Talented, committed, refreshingly irreverent: John Barker is a South African filmmaker based in Johannesburg. His directional debut Bunny Chow was officially selected to screen at the Toronto International Film Festival in 2006. The film has since received many accolades but, more importantly, touched the funny bone and heart of South Africans across the country.

Bunny Chow used a memorable retro-scripting technique with the actors improvising their dialogue to communicate the comedy narrative. The outline script for Bunny Chow was written by Barker and David Kibuuka and later retro-scripted with Editor, Saki Bergh.

Multi-talented, with a career spanning two decades, Barker excels at directing feature films, commercial work, music videos and gritty documentaries; making for an outstanding and diverse showreel.

You can catch a one on one interview with John Barker and Marycate on E’bioscope 104fm BCR radio @09:30 Friday 22nd July 2016 – if you miss it you can find the podcast on their website.

For now, here’s the trailer to Wonder Boy
