Barnes is the
half-brother of Don Dohler (same mother, different fathers), though
they grew up together and have never considered themselves anything
less than just brothers.
Barnes, who has a life-long love of Clint Eastwood’s
spaghetti westerns, collaborated with Larry Schlechter in the early
1980s to create an album of western-themed music. Calling themselves
“Led and Silver,” Barnes and Schlechter managed to create original
music that evoked visions of Eastwood’s Italian-made westerns.
Brother Don used several pieces from the album in
his 1985 film, Galaxy Invader.
Barnes, with his musical background, was the natural choice to be the
chief sound engineer for Timewarp Films. He records all of the sound
for the movies, and has a keen ear for hearing unwanted “noise”
(distant planes and motorcycles) during a take.
Barnes has a history with his brother’s movies, as well.
He played a rock singer in a bar scene in Alien
Factor, had his guts ripped out in Nightbeast,
and wore the cumbersome rubber monster suit in Galaxy
Invader. He has been an extra in Alien
was a “body in a car trunk” in Harvesters,
and a vampire in Stakes.
Barnes is the store manager for the Jeppi
Nut and Candy Co., which was used as a main location for Stakes.
•Barnes’ favorite movie is The Good, the Bad and the Ugly.
•Barnes has worked at Jeppi for 26 years.
•He came up with the idea of “frozen holy water stakes” for Stakes.
•His favorite Timewarp movie to date: Harvesters.
