DANIEL LANE BAKER
DIRECTOR / FIELD PRODUCER
I PRODUCE and DIRECT narrative films, commercials, and web content with an eye toward AUTHENTIC PERFORMANCES and RICH PRODUCTION DESIGN.
I love Tom Waits, rye whiskey, spicy food, bold colors, weird films, Søren Kierkegaard, Flannery O’Connor, death metal, and black coffee sweetened with a little bit of honey. I’ve been telling stories and building stuff since I can remember.
I’ve been trained and mentored by Academy Award-nominated screenwriter Mark Medoff, and RECTIFY writer/director Scott Teems.
I live in Memphis, TN with my two awesome kids.
