Barret helped Dayton design and build Digital Air's first Timetrack™ camera array, which is now in the permanent collection of the Smithsonian National Museum of American History.
Barret also worked for Electrokinetics when Electrokinetics built Digital Air's Timetrack™ film cameras in the 1990s. Electrokinetics was acquired by Razorfish in 1999, which was acquired by Microsoft in 2007 and sold to Publicis Groupe in 2009.
Today Barret works with Digital Air as a camera operator and in the art and visual effects departments on studio feature films and television series. He also writes novels (Fear Itself, Forge Books), screenplays, and television scripts and is an accomplished painter.
