Baker is working out of the Los Angeles office. He worked in the industry since 2001 and produced, line produced and supervised 15 feature films and more than 60 commercials and formed William Baker Films in 2012.

He produced police thriller “Legacy,” starring Justin Chatwin and Peter Stormare; co-produced “My Friend Dahmer,” starring Ross Lynch and Anne Heche; supervised “Criminal Activities” with John Travolta and Dan Stevens; and exec produced  “Puff Puff Pass,” starring Danny Masterson and Mekhi Phifer.

GreenSlate’s clients have included best picture Academy Award winner “Moonlight” and best documentary feature winner “O.J.: Made in America.”
