Barber has gained stature within the music video industry for his ability to break out of the cliches that have dogged the music video business. Barber's videos convey a classic mood often taken from previous era hits. Barber's ability to be heard as a clear and distinct authorial voice lay in his gift for defining a unique visual style, a postmodern style that relied heavily on the use of classic film and TV clips [ [ Bryan Barber - Trailer - Showtimes - Cast - Movies - New York Times ] ] . For example, Barber referenced "Grease" in the OutKast music video Roses and the Beatles' Ed Sullivan appearance in the band's video for Hey Ya!. In the process, Barber emerged as a highly unique talent and imparted a wholly original image to the hip-hop movement [ [ Bryan Barber - Trailer - Showtimes - Cast - Movies - New York Times ] ] .

Barber made his feature film [ debut] with "Idlewild", a 1930s musical set in the fictional Georgia town of Idlewild (inspired by the Michigan resort town that served as a safe vacation haven for middle-class blacks in the pre-Civil Rights era ). The filmed starred Outkast, who produced "Idlewild (album)" an accompanying album.
