Music video’s under the director’s nomination included Dallas Smith‘s “One Little Kiss,”Chad Brownlee Music‘s “Hearts On Fire” and “I Hate You For It,” Bucko & Toad‘s “Summer Girl,” and breakout newcomer Jesse Mast‘s “Bad Blood.”

Last month, Barberis returned from London, Ontario where he won his 9th CCMA Award for Video Director Of The Year.

Stephano has quietly achieved this iconic success by frequent, surprise, sea-change reinvention, an unwavering obsession with quality, and a cult-like dedicated following in industry and fan circles who religiously support the director at every stage of his career. With a strongly cinematic influence of magic-realism, Barberis has often been credited with changing the aesthetic face of country music in Canada while pushing boundaries in pop, rap, and other genres.
