January Guest - Matt Baker

Welcome Matt Baker -

Join us for the first meeting of the year to learn about Animation. Matt will share with us how to use Animation to Enhance and Support Your Story.



Matt Baker was born in 1972, saw Star Wars at age five and was never the same again. Age 12 found him in advanced classes at Sac State for physics, speed reading and video production, so starting a video production company fresh out of high school seemed nothing out of the ordinary. In 1992, Jurassic Park became the newest catalyst, spurring Matt to study computer animation; he attended the Art Institute of Seattle, then earned his degree with honors at  Collins College for Computer Animation. Since then, Matt has worked on numerous commercials, music videos and feature films, and received numerous awards at the Sacramento Film and Music Festival for the past several years and most recently Best Film at the CFAA's Creative Interpretations Film Challenge II.
