(September 7th, 2012) - Stephano Barberis has gone on to break more records at this year's 2012 CCMA's, scoring his fifth award for Video Director Of The Year. This win makes the captivating director delve further into his status as the most winningest music video director in that category's history, but also gives him the distinction of winning more than two years in a row - a feat yet unparalleled until now.
The additional hardware on Barberis' buckling mantle now tallies up to 21 directorial awards from various national and provincial organisations. We would venture to say that this may make Stephano the most awarded director in Canadian history.
And as they say - timing is everything. The very next day after winning the CCMA, Stephano's video for Dean Brody, "Bob Marley," officially hit the #1 spot on Canada's top 20 on the CMT network. This makes it the director's 12th #1 music video, even spanning different continents.
And it doesn't stop there. The unique, boundary-pushing director's third music video for Dallas Smith's "Jumped Right In" entered into that same top 20 this week, becoming Stephano's 49th top 20 music video!
With no slow-down on the horizon, Stephano is currently working on music videos for Tebey, Hey Romeo, Josh Macumber, Christina Walls, Breathe Of My Leaves, and is putting the finishing touches on a rather slick and moody video for Small Town Pistols.
