Some examples of early film work and other aspects of Barry's life and work that don't fit elsewhere.
In 2003, Barry was Previz Animation Director for King Kong in Wellington, New Zealand.
In 2006 Barry was invited to China to co-present TV SUPER GIRLS (the ‘Pop Idol’ final in China). This aired live to an audience of several hundred million viewers with Barry attempting to announce the winners in Mandarin (which he doesn't speak). He was never quite sure why they invited him although the competition did include animated film entries.
In July 2011, Barry was awarded an Honorary Doctorate by Staffordshire University for services to the Universtity and Animation.
